    I played in these caves as a kid .... so different to experience them as an adult! The trail can be slick & steep so be prepared for that. Walking sticks are available at the entrance & no flip flops ...  more »

    This versatile hike can be kept very simple or you can go all out and crawl in the caves to explore! Very much worth the low cost! Gorgeous photo opps too!  more »

    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.
