Absolutely gorgeous in every way possible. The beauty of the bright blue water, the awesome caves, rock scaling and everything in between is worth the trip to this Ontario wonder. And take the long way out of the woods!

HikingBugsRockyWashed out

We started at P1 and took Georgian Bay Trail to the grotto. Trail was clean, easy and well marked. We passed Indian head cove and hiked through the rocks to get to the grotto. On our way back we took Marr Lake Trail. The beginning was a bit confusing, maybe we missed the beginning of the trail, but the trail was a bit ambiguous until we could see Boulder Beach in the distance and from there it was clear. Trail was more challenging, elevation changes and rocks but it’s more fun that way. A bit buggy too. Overall, a great hike with an even greater reward of swimming in the grotto.

HikingGreat!Scramble

Great due to less traffic with limited parking reservations due to covid. Did Georgian there and back as worried Marr Lake would be difficult with kids and dog. Well-marked and wide trail until you get to the grotto then lots of scrambling as expected. Gorgeous views!!

Went last month before the park was closed. Recommend trekking poles & crampons. Mixture of flat & rocky walking. Beautiful in winter too

Beautiful views! Definitely wear good shoes or hiking boots as it is very rocky and unstable at the beach.

Beautiful trail. We started on Horse Lake Trail, then the Grotto Caves, and then this one on our way back. The caves are spectacular but very cold water to swim in! Be prepared lol.

Trail was great, a bit rocky in several spots but to be expected along a rocky shoreline. Views incredible, especially the Grotto! We picked the right time to be there as it will get very crowded in the next few weeks.

This trail was great! We saw several snakes, eagles, spiders and frogs. =) the lookouts and the views are fantastic. You have to buy a ticket for the national park (around 11 dollar for two with car). Don’t forget to reserve in high season - unfortunately max 4 hours starting 8am, 12 and 4pm.

we were both shocked at how blue the water was. The entire coast was absolutely stunning!
