Up for a unique adventure this fall? Then you will absolutely love the fascinating Boyd’s Crevices hike along The Bruce Trail.
The 2.4 km “in and out” hike takes around two hours to complete, according to the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
As you make your way along the trail, you will come face to face with “giant dolostone blocks separated by spectacular crevices,” says the conservancy.
You’ll want to take your time as you wander and soak up the magic of these towering rock walls all around you.
And it’s worth mentioning that you will need to be wearing proper shoes as this isn’t your average terrain.
According to Ontario Nature Trails, you will be led to a ladder at the end of the crevice which you will use to climb to the top.
Once you’ve made it there, you can explore the nearby cave and enjoy the tranquil beaver pond.

At that point, you can retrace your steps back to the parking lot.
This trail is located in the Sydenham section of the Bruce Trail, and there is so much more to see in the area.
This section of the trail passes through “hardwood forests and farms, past wetlands, small creeks, the lovely Walters Falls, and features some beautiful lookouts over the Big Head valley,” says the Sydenham Bruce Trail’s website.
And if that’s not enough cave exploring for you, you can head over to the breathtaking Overhanging Point in the Bruce Peninsula area, which features fascinating cliffs that hang over the edge of the forest and a “secret rabbit hole” to explore.
The season of adventure continues here in Ontario. Enjoy it while you can!
