Nice caves - not a whole lot to do

Went to two caving areas on the weekend, this one was our first stop. It was nice and great to see, but the trail was a little to short and left me wanting more caves!

A sunny day in November and just about 15 cars in the parking lot - a great opportunity to go for a walk without hundreds of other people around.

Make sure you take a good pair of running shoes or hiking shoes and prepare to explore some great scenic caves. If you're a nature enthusiast and you are visiting the Wiarton area, you must visit Bruce's Caves, you won't be disappointed. Drive down the road very slowly because it's not in the best of shape, especially if you drive... More

This is part of the Bruce Trail system throughout Ontario. You walk for about a kilometre to get to large amphitheatre style caves. There are some chimneys that the explorers among your group can shimmy up. Where proper walking or hiking shoes - no flip-flops - the trail is not difficult, but the caves have a lot of loose rock...

Went with my family on a not so busy day. The trails are nice, not hard to navigate as there is clearly only one way until the caves. The caves themselves are a whole in a cliff, it is interesting to observe nature's power. You can head out from the main cave to look at a side cave that is... More

I used to hike into these often when I was a kid and was just recently back there. Still a nice, short hike in but unless you can traverse some rocks in some good shoes you don't see much. Don't wear flip flops as the rocks are sharp. The caves are beautiful, but people have put their mark on them... More

Make sure you wear good running shoes. Loved how it only costs $5 per vehicle. If your looking for an inexpensive day trip go to the Bruce Caves. Make sure you keep climbing the escarpment all the way through or else you won't see all of the caves.
