  • 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! 
  • Went a nature walk for about 2 hours and we still wasn't at the end by my son had fallen asleep on the trail and had to turn around. But the trail was good cuz it is also marked so you won get lost. N...  read more »
  • 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 Bruc...  read more »
  • A fun hike through a really cool trail of caves. Lot charges $5 for parking but it's worth it to keep the place so well maintained.
  • This is a hidden gem that not a lot of people know about. Before the caves there are some majestic ruins of a once huge mansion. The caves are absolutely beautiful. Great place to visit for a hike and for photography.
  • Bruce caves is a very scenic environment to visit. Walking up the main path you will come across the first and most grand of the caves along the escarpment, and from there you can take a left to carry on along the face of the cliff to explore other smaller caves, or take a right and climb up the cliff to walk along the top for a fantastic view of the bay. When it's foggy out in the bay the view becomes a fantasy with the escarpment across the bay poking up through the fog like mountains in a sea of clouds. The only issues I had during my visit were the many potholes scattered along the single lane road leading to the parking lot, which are easy to get around with enough patience, but someone could be paid to do a routine check and fill of these holes. And the litter! Do the environment a favor and bring a small plastic garbage bag with you on nature excursions to pick up litter found along the trails and in the caves, and so you can collect your own garbage if any is made including dog poop. To many times have a seen people leave poop bags just sitting on the ground or hanging from a tree. The bags are used for picking up and relocating the poop to a garbage, not so you can leave it wherever you want. Have some respect, not only for the environment, but for the people that visit this place besides yourself. P.s. If you're going to spray graffiti make sure your art is worth while, otherwise it looks like crap.
  • Really fun and easy hike! There's parking inside the area, but it's $5. The walk isn't far, so I suggest you park outside the conservation area.
  • Nice scenery but the path to the caves is tricky to find if you walk in from the road.
