Bruce's Caves Conservation Area derives its greatest significance from the unique cave formations found along the escarpment face. 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.  Location is 4.8 km east of Wiarton.  Access to Bruce Trail.  A place to snowshoe in the winter - laneway is not maintained in the winter.  (Spring, Summer & Fall Parking Fee)
