Scenic Caves - Collingwood, Ontario
In 1850, when an intrepid visitor journeyed up Blue Mountain and left his initials in the caves, the trip would have been an adventure indeed. Today, Scenic Caves offers more than simply thrilling caves... more than spectacular scenery and awe-inspiring views... more than unspoiled nature. Located in the Town of the Blue Mountains , just 20 minutes from Wasaga Beach, and less than two hours north of Toronto , make it a must to explore Scenic Caves Nature Adventures. Standing near the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment -- more than 300 metres in elevation above Georgian Bay -- the new suspension footbridge at Scenic Caves is Ontario 's newest feature attraction. Take a breathtaking 126-metre hike across a narrow bridge, which arcs 25 metres above a treed valley. And thanks to its location, you'll feel as if you're suspended above the world!
