Stumbled upon the sign for the Bruce Caves and decided to venture in. The road is long and horrible...so be cautious if driving something other than a truck...the pot holes could swallow your car...drive slow and pay attention. That being said...once you park it is a short hike into the forest to the caves and they are beautiful! We were... More

Spent a few hours hiking around and exploring the caves with my wife on our honeymoon. Found the caves easily enough. Had to walk from the road though because the path to the parking lot had some large pot holes that my car wouldn't have made it through. P. S. Google directions because the ones provided by this app don't... More

We thought the caves were well worth the rough road that it took to get to them! Be prepared for a single lane, pot hole filled road as well as a $5 parking fee. Trail was well marked and the short hike is through a very scenic forest. Caves are quite easily accessed (wear appropriate footwear, saw a family in... More

Drove by coming from Wiarton, had to come back. When you get off the road, you are allowed to keep driving on the dirt road. Nice path to get to the caves, sandalls friendly. Once you get there, you need 5-10 minutes to enjoy and take pictures. Too bad for the dummies who tagged the cave.

What's with the low reviews. Easy to find. I took a picture for those reviewers who seemed confused as to where to go. Low cost outing. Huge natural caves.

Was a great little excursion. Easy walk on the trail in and climb around caves is likewise easy. No risk or at least low risk as caves are wide open and high. There is a little climbing that can be done and that was good for teen son. The entrance to the central cave is a "flower pot" in formation... More

Beyond the first sign as you enter the woods and head toward the first cave, there was nothing to point the way toward actual, established trails! We are experienced hikers and trail travellers and after about 1 km of exploring and looking for any indication of human presence beyond the 2nd cave, we turned back thinking we might have missed...

We had a really good time. The path was a good work out for our family. We loved it. The kids talked about it all the way home.

This trail is in terrible shape. it is not marked and the vegetation is so overgrown that you cannot see any caves. The caves are not marked. It is by luck that we noticed a few small caves under rocks. If there are any larger caves, we did not find them for the overgrowth. We were there May 18th, The... More

The trail in doesn't take very long and is through pretty woods. The caves themselves are pretty cool, and there are other trails around if one wants a longer walk.
