We enjoyed this hike, although a few things of note; we mistakenly parked near the road and at that point the trail is not adequately signed ... or we didn't see the later very well marked 'blue' trail signs... so accidentally added at least two km of wood trail walking not part of the intended hike. All part of the adventure I suppose.

Consider driving further in and parking near where there is signage for the "caves".

Also important to note that while it's not a steep nor particularly challenging hike other than distance, the route along the escarpment/ridge has many deep crevices and deep holes as well as areas that are quite close to the edge. Consider caution with children who like to run and play...
With the ground covering of fall leaves some of the rocks and wood can be unseen and ankle turning.

All said a beautiful walk.

We did this hike yesterday and had to turn around as it was not possible to walk anymore. Its too wild and there are no signs, for sure not good for kids.. othervise I believe it would be nice.

Great 2km loop area, can be done with kids easily. Wear your bug repellent!

Great trail for mostly any age. Easily maneuverable with beautiful sights to see. Not a major challenge of a hike.

The BTA does a great job of maintaining the trail. There are some lengthy sections without access to water so plan ahead if the weather is warm. I did only camping so it made for a couple of long days to reach the next campground. Started in Wharton then to Cape Croker to McKays Harbour to Reed's Dump to Mountain Trout Camp to Cypress Lake and finished off to Tobermory. Actual terminus of Bruce Trail another few meters past the GPS coordinates of this map but otherwise accurate when we hiked it.

Well marked. But we followed the blue trail upward until it connected with the white trail. Much further than the 19km that is stated. But it was a beautiful hike. Stunning views. 25km all in on the route that we took.

Nice lightly used section of the Bruce Trail along the Niagara Escarpment. Easily accessed from several side trails.
