Lusk Cave Reviews
We visited Lusk Caves for the first time. It's definitely not our last! The walk to the caves was not excruciating, but it was long enough. The Parent Beach parking lot is a 5km hike to the caves. Smi... more »
We took the option of the loop walk using path 73 to reach the cave and path 50 to return along Lac Phillipe. This is a 10km walk which is much the same distance if you choose path 50 both ways. Howev... more »
As others have mentioned it's about 5 km hike in each direction and the trails aren't extremely well marked. There's fairly good cell signal so you can actually use google maps if you get lost along t... more »
Before getting there, I have been told oposite things. Some were telling it was mind blowing, others that it was just all right, but nothing extraordinary. For me, the truth was somewhere in the middle: it is a must see and it is really cool to go in and explore the caves. It is a very pretty set of caves linked with each other and at times challenging for a short person like myself. Overall, I loved the experience but I would not rate it as the best cave exploration I have ever done. It is best to go with friends to share and who the exploration. Usually crowded, I don't commend a head lamp and to go in you swimming suit, because at times you'll have to dive (depending on the level of the water) to jeep moving. Not for claustrophobic people.
Amazing views, my friend and I were so impressed. Definitely going back more prepared; more flashlights and swimwear and towels. The caves are too cool. Only downfall about this trail is that we got lost and instead of only doing a 5km total, we ended doing 14.5km. The signs are not very clear. I recommend you bring a map.
A few friends and I visited the caves about a week ago. There are two trails you can take, one is a very wide gravel road alongside lac phillipe - fairly flat until you reach some stairs that go up through the woods (for a short amount of time until you reach the caves.) The other is a fairly strenuous much longer trail through the woods, past little water falls and streams, a much nicer hike! We took the hike up through the woods there, and the gravel road back - somehow turning it into a 15km day from car back to car. The trail is easily visible with markers but not well marked (as in no way points on map and no indication of how far you are until you are very close!) The caves themselves are beautiful and full of wildlife - frogs, small fish and catfish (bats too although we didn't see any!) Side note -I'm claustrophobic and I had no problem in these caves, they are very wide and have high ceilings! Go on a day with a nice breeze, pack lots of water, take the hike through the woods, and bring water shoes or another pair of shoes to wear in the caves, this will help you avoid blisters and also so avoid being nick named "squeaky feet" on your trek back to your car.
Kids love our trips to the cave. They can go thru it over and over again. On a hot day this is a great way to cool off. We were limited on time so we biked most of the way this time -- saves a lot of tim.
First of all, you will get wet. You can do part of it only getting wet to your knees (assuming 5'10"). After the middle where it opens, if you commit to thr second half, be prepared to swim. I wore a helmet, but I climbed a bit and definately bumped my head. The second half needs a good waterproof flashlight as well. You can take the Cave Trail for some exercise, or take Trail 50 (Trans Canada Trail) for an easy walk or ride. Be warned, the last 500m is not bike/stroller friendly. Also, the star of the Cave Trail is poorly marked.
