Bruce Peninsula Ontario Caves

Click for Wiarton, Ontario Forecast
The beautiful Bruce Peninsula is home of Greig's Caves. You will enjoy the breathtaking view of Georgian Bay as you walk along the pathway on top of the caves. There are many rare and beautiful flowers and ferns to see, and lots of tunnels and caverns to explore.

There are12 natural limestone caves along a half mile trail 300 feet above Georgian Bay.

Part of the movie Quest For Fire was filimed here.

The caves have been in Greig family since the turn of the century.

These caves were formed by the wave action of post-glacial Lake Algonquin, 7,000 to 8,000 years ago. The significance of the cave formations lies in their dramatic illustration of past weathering processes and impresses upon us the magnitude of the post-glacial lake levels. The caves also illustrate the different physical and chemical weathering rates of various sections of the escarpment (soluble limestone and Amabel dolomite).
