Due to seasonal extremes in temperature and the forces of gravity, large blocks of rock have broken away from the main face of the Niagara Escarpment. The gradual shifting downwards of these huge blocks has produced the crevice caves of the Collingwood-Blue Mountain area. The park's range of microclimates supports interesting cliff face vegetation communities.

would recommend going counter clockwise. good views, great water features and rock scrambles. pretty easy - flat enough in most parts to be a trail run. i'd never seen the ladders before. very cool!

A great hike. I chose a side trail at one point that involved climbing some rocks - favourite part of the hike. A lot of running water to enjoy listening to. Would like to do it again in the summer.

My phone died and stopped the recording but it ended up being about 10km.

Great walk! Easy to follow signs and route on the app was close to actual.

We began our hike at the parking lot. Ok. Where else.
Our hike was very enjoyable until we got into the escarpment part BLUE trail(about 5km later) and we lost our way.
We are new to hiking but the directions to follow are not that difficult. We went back and forth to find markers.
Finally we decided to take the road back to the car, because it was the shortst way possible at this point.
I'd love to do the trail again

Kind of disappointing. No caves?
