Great hike - lots to see and moderately challenging.

The Singhampton Caves Trail is part of the Nottawasaga Lookout Loop. The Caves Trail is challenging because the Trail takes you through spectacular rock formations requiring you to crouch through openings and slide down on snow. There are some steep sections so wear crampons. Do not wear snowshoes because they will be too big and cumbersome in some of the areas. Poles are recommended. I suggest you start from the eastern approach and climb up into the Caves Trail instead of starting at the top and hiking down. It is worth the effort because this is one of the nicest hiking trails in this part of Ontario.

Amazing trail! Love all the rocky outcroppings and crevices.

Beautiful winter scenery. Be advised that on the 1st of January 2019 the bridge over the river on the western loop was out and you cannot cross. Backtracking and going around the eastern loop posed no problems.

lovely trail to explore, take a walking stick for help with balancing on the rocks, bring a good camera so you don't miss out any nice shots

Amazing views. Well worth while!

Beautiful trails. 3 different trails to choose from. A 7km and two 4km options.

Short but sweet! Great views, beautiful forest and fun scrambles through the caves. Best quick hike in the area. If anyone is confused, this trail is referred to as the "Standing Rock and Caves" side trail in the Bruce Trail guide. "Singhampton Caves" is actually a larger loop that also contains this side trail.

Crevices and scenic bluffs view easy to reach. Nice hike and especially pretty after season’s first snow fall.


great place nice view. Great off trial challenges.

First time using this app and first time truly hiking. Got very lost but it’s a beautiful trail. Very nice place to get lost. Will revisit, for sure.

Great trail can be busy on weekends and the loop on the river side is not marked very well so be sure to watch for the markers!

This is an extremely beautiful trail with varied terrain. Hiking shoes are absolutely required to navigate a few sections. It is definitely “moderate”. I echo the comment about doing the loop counter-clockwise (ie follow the Bruce Trail white blaze markings) unless you want to incorporate more cardio. Regardless you won’t be disappointed.

A good hike. The ground was damp following overnight rain, combined with fallen leaves, meant footing in some places was slippery.

Beautiful day for a hike. Signage at Metcalf was very poor and a few other areas after. Shortly after there is a bit of a ladder that was slightly difficult for my dog.
Parking lot holds about 5 cars but can park on roadside.
Energetic hike took 4 hours including rest and getting turned around.
Need good shoes lots of rocks.

Great little trail. The glass bottom boat or the zodiac will bring you to the island. Spending as much time as you might need. Lots to explore. Really lovely.

Halfway Log Dump to Grotto and back, 13km (with some double-backing). A great day trek, moderately difficult. The greatest benefit from a start at Halfway Log Dump is parking access (~60 cars, $11.70 fee) and until you reach the Cyprus intersection, no people. The grotto was well populated, we left quickly. Two dogs with us (Portuguese Water Dogs), they loved the day. Note that the first access to water, north from Halfway Log Dump is over 5km; this proved to be a lot of heat for the dogs. Full summer heat/humidity would have been too much.

Great trail, the kids loved it!! Mostly in shaded area, beautiful scenery and versatile.
If walking with small children MUST behave carefully around cliff view.

Great hiking spot. Diverse landscapes, beautiful views. Bugs were not bad at all. Would definitely explore this area again.

Sept 15 - very warm day for hiking but the cedar and delicious tree canopy made for a very comfortable hike. Amazing crevices!

if possible check out each trail at flowerpot as they offer a different experience

Great trail. Suggest going right from the trailhead to begin the loop. This makes it easier to manoeuvre the cave section at the end. (Easier climbing up the cave section than down)

Enjoyable trail with the highlight of hiking through the caves.
A few rocky climbs which could be slippery if wet.
Some deep holes to watch out for if hiking with small kids. Ours loved it.

Great place to check out, very unique!

This was not a strenuous trail. The terrain was challenging though, so rough in some parts that pieces of tread broke off from my shoes (although the treads were small). The rocks along the shore was also a bit challenging to walk on as they move when you step on them. Beautiful view of the turquoise colour shoreline in some spots. The grotto was a nice spot. Toilets at the start of the trail, 1/2 way to the Grotto (at Stormhaven) and at the Grotto. Took 5 hours for the return trip so we were happy to rest our feet when we finished.

In retrospect I'm glad we weren't able to get reserved Grotto parking because that trail would not have been as much fun.

Definitely not a bike path!! Lol. The walk is thru the forest and it is full of ups and downs with rocks and tree roots exposed. We took the key hole path and it is definitely something to see and do.

Bring your bug spray, hiking stick, good hiking shoes and lots of water. It is a beautiful walk!

Beautiful trail; we especially enjoyed the Keyhole Side Trail which had rocks and crevices to climb over and through.

You may want to pay for parking ahead of time or by phone, as patchy service made the pay app a waste of time.

I enjoyed the scenery on this hike

A hidden gem. I asked a couple on the main trail if I was near the entrance to the side loop and they had never heard of it. It was the most challenging hike I had taken my 5 yo grandson on and he loved it (even though he thought the cave was not big enough.).
