Greig's Caves, Bruce Peninsula

4.8
#5 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.

  • I wasn't fully expecting a hike like this when I first got there, but it was stunning to see the different rock formations and caves. The hike was a bit difficult, but I am not the most avid hiker. It would be something that I would love to do again, and to make sure I have lots of water, good foot wear and a great camera to take some more pictures!
  • Year after year, we keep coming back. Fantastic scenery and challenging hike every time my three son's and I go.
  • Great place to spend a few hours in a magical world of caves, trails and endless photo opportunities. Pretty rugged terrain, few slippery spots. Bring water.
  • A great cave formation. Fairly advanced hike, need good knees and balance!
  • High on the wow factor cave's are large and the height of the escarpment wall is breath taking it made for a nice day during our week stay in Tobermory. Good hiker's highly recommended very challenging trail took my wife and I around two hrs to do the main loop trail but that was taking the time to take it all in. Water a flashlight and of course a camera also recommended. Our visit was in early September 2015.
