Bruce's Caves Conservation Area


As suggested by the name, Bruce’s Caves Conservation Area boasts breathtaking cave formations. These unique caves line the Niagara escarpment face and were likely formed by wave action in the ancient post-glacial lake, 7,000-8,000 years ago! These caves are illustrations into the past, giving clues as to the pre-glacial landscape. The conservation area spans 17 acres and a wide variety of habitats, including hardwood forests and wooded swampland. Hike over this varied landscape through beautiful, mossy woods. You can even continue on for a longer hike by connecting directly to the Bruce Trail.
