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

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.

Hiked up to Bruce Caves, the hike was great for a first time hiker. Directions to cave signage was good.

My husband and I stopped through the caves on our way from Owen Sound to Red Bay. Wasn't sure what to expect because the drive in to the conservation area was VERY bumpy- and we were in a four wheel drive pick up truck. Once we arrived, the hike to the caves was about 10 minutes max. It's a nice... More

more of a hole in the side of a cliff than a cave. Ok to visit if looking for something to do, but not a repeat or a reccmmendation for sure
