Greig's Caves, Bruce Peninsula

4.8
#6 of 7 in Nature in Bruce County
Embark on an adventure through the 10 natural limestone formations of Greig's Caves. From the trail above the caves, you can enjoy the view of Georgian Bay. The trail to the caves offers peaceful views and picnic tables for breaks. Due to slippery rocks, wear comfortable hiking shoes. Bring a flashlight to see the darkest parts of the caves. Plan my trip to Lion's Head with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • We had a great time! Beautiful hike leading up to the caves and up to the lookout. Lots of room in the caves to explore safely, and a few smaller areas to squeeze into if you're feeling adventurous. Definitely wear shoes with good tread - very slippery. Lots of parking available and a nice rest area with a clean washroom for customers. Will definitely be back.
  • Staff were polite and helpful, never used a walking stick before in my life but I'm so happy they convinced me to take one. Rocks can be slippery in places, and you have to be careful when exploring but it's worth it. Got some great pics too! Check this place out if you want a fun and interesting hike!
  • Three families with kids (all 14+) visited mid-August, 2017 for a day trip. Be prepared with good shoes, hiking stick, perhaps a flashlight and at least two hours to fully tour the lovely natural beauty. Some of the larger caves are indeed very large (a few city bus worth). Path may be challenging to some (young or old). Did not care to sign a waiver but understand the reason.
  • Great little day trip spot with alot of fun caves to explore with friends or family. Picnic area available and a great observation area to end the hike with a great view. Does require some coordination and climbing ability if you want to enjoy the full potential of the hike, bring a headlamp and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Running shoes required. Good date idea for that adventurous couple. not dog friendly.
  • This place is pretty good for people who likes to walk on rocks! But be careful of poison ivy, poisonous snakes and animals! The rocks are truly slippery when you go off of the track. You have to sign a waiver.
