Ontario's Ancient Caves Will Let You Wander Through Stunning Labyrinths This Fall
Get ready to hike. Scenic caves in Ontario has ancient rock labyrinths which you can climb through this fall. The gorgeous rock formations will take you back in time.
Lace-up your hiking boots because you can find a natural wonder when you drive over to The Blue Mountains in Ontario.
The historic site is actually one of the 18 UNESCO world heritage sites in Canada.
This magical nature adventure site is just a quick road trip away from Toronto.
You can weave through changing rock formations on a self-guided trail among giant moss-covered boulders.
The crevices were carved out by glacial ice present in the region millions of years ago, and there are 17 different geological formations to see while you're there.
Caverns also exist 70 feet below surface-level, and you can descend into the depths on a steel railed boardwalk which winds in between the rocks.
Explore both above and below ground at this location with limestone cliffs and panoramic views of Georgian Bay.
The land was once home to the Petun First Nations people.
The size of the boulders will make you feel tiny, and the scene changes along the hike.
At times, you will have to squeeze your way through tight spaces in between huge stones.
Hiking shoes are a must when you arrive, and you won't be allowed on the grounds without proper footwear.
There are 11 different paths you can follow, including 2 short cuts, one of which is narrow.
The longest one is the Ridge Top Lookout Trail, which spans 3.5 kilometres one-way.
After hiking through the caves, you can walk along southern Ontario's largest suspension bridge and take in the fall colours.
The bridge is located on the same sight as the caves, so make a day out of it!
