Scenic Caves

Collingwood, ON

Scenic Caves profile image

There is something magical about experiencing a day where you can walk across a suspension bridge as high as the Eiffel Tower, hike through a beautiful forest, climb through some deep caves and caverns, and take a tractor or train ride through the country.

The Scenic Caves is by far one of the best outings in Southern Ontario. Located in Collingwood, near Blue Mountain Ski Resort, the Scenic Caves truly provides something special for everyone. Fresh air for everyone. Amazing views of Georgian Bay for everyone. Kid friendly. Fun challenges for adults. And an entire day can be spent there for the cost of a night out at the movies.

The caves are some of the most beautiful in all of Canada and they are extremely well maintained. There are some places that will make even the seasoned adventurer a little uncomfortable such as taking a look off the cliff straight down 18 - 24 metres. Or attempting to get through Fat Man's Misery where the narrowest part is only 36 centimetres across; better save lunch for after that cave. But there are enough stairways and banisters that everyone can enjoy the adventure.

As for the fun stuff for kids; the playground puts most others to shame. There are climbing walls, rope climbing gyms, and many other excellent apparati. There is also a train ride that kids can take solo on a 10 to 15 minute tour around the property with a real train engineer giving them all the insights to the sights around them.

For those who want to experience the ultimate adventure; how about a zip line ride right off the cliff. You can do that too.

Although it is a little out of the way for most people, it is certainly worth the drive out in the morning for the full day of nature filled fun. It is a deal at twice the admission price.

The Scenic Caves is probably my favourite outing to date. My wife, kids, and I had the most fantastic time on our little trip to Collingwood. We spent around 4 hours there, but could have easily spent more.

If you are in the Blue Mountain or Wasaga Beach area, you should certainly plan for a trip here.

After Seeing this Collingwood sight I feel you have really shared a perfect spot for a family adventure.One filled with fun , fresh air and exercise for those active little children. Wonderful! Well done.

We just came back from that area, and photographed some of the other touristy things. Collingwood truly is place filled with lots to do all year round for the wwwwwwwwwwwwhole family young and old! In driving by the Caves sign I wondered "Why do I know this place". Now I know! Saw it here! Being older I have limitations as far as physical activity is concerned, so I imagine I'd have a hard time there keeping up, if climbing.
