Very nice and with easy access, the place might need information on the formations that we find there, as well as the plants that we can see there. The richness on moss, shrubs, vegetation present need to be discussed

While hiking the Bruce Trail we took a small detour off the main trail to go to the caves. You HAVE to see this if you're in the area. It's stunning.

The time of year that we visited wasn't the greatest but it was still a nice hike. The trail was very poorly marked and only the worn path and knocked down bushes indicated you were going the proper direction. It would have also been nicer it the trail was a loop instead of just walking till the undergrowth was too... More

Took the family (wife and preteens) for an afternoon hike. The terrain is rocky but not overly aggressive. take good shoes and flip flops would be a big fail!. There are a couple of caves to check out and there is climbing available on some if you feel so inclined. We took great pictures and the who;e family loved it.... More

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.

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!

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
