Bruce Peninsula – The Grotto

The Grotto, Indian Cove and Cypress Lake.  Thousands of years of waves pounding the shores of Indian Cove have carved a spectacular cave at the Grotto, which is accessible to visitors if you don’t mind the climb in and out. Swimming in Indian Cove is so very refreshing on a hot summer day.  During the summer months, parking to access these sites fill to capacity regularly, resulting in visitors being denied access. Consider planning your visit during non-peak hours or in the spring and fall. There are several other destinations and activities to explore when the parking lots are full.  The hike to the Grotto takes roughly 30 minutes along the 1 km Georgian Bay Trail or 50 minutes from Parking Lot 2. Although the trail to the shoreline is hard packed, the shoreline itself is rugged uneven limestone, while the decent into the grotto involves climbing down 40ft over a rocky open cliff.
