Scenic Lookout
“The famous Bruce Peninsula Grotto is one of the most visited natural attractions in Ontario. And it has become so popular in the summer months that the Park has created timed slots for visiting this area of the Park. But don’t let this dissuade you. Let it inspire you to hike to the Grotto in spring, fall or winter – all are equally impressive. But, how do you get to the Grotto? The best hiking route to the Grotto starts with the Cyprus Lake Trail. It’s calm and beautiful. Then take the Georgian Bay Trail to Indian Cove. Here you’ll begin a stunning stretch of scenic views of the crystal clear waters of the Bay. But the trail then becomes a bit of a scramble over rocks as you continue along the coast by way of the Bruce Trail. Not too far past Indian Cove you’ll find yourself overlooking a magical sea cave filled with blue-green waters. In the summer many climb down to swim in the cave. This is NOT advised as the tide and current can change quickly. And don’t let this be your finally stop before heading back. Continue along to Bolder Beach via the Bruce Trail and up the other side of the beach. Here you’ll find MORE epic views as well as Overhanging Point. After you’ve wrapped up your hiking along the Bruce Trail you can return back to your starting point via Marr Lake Trail.”
