Bruce Peninsula National Park - Cyprus Lake

Bruce Peninsula National Park encompasses an area primarily composed of limestone bedrock, yet it holds many diverse features. Marl rock fens and sand dunes are found along Lake Huron where most orchids grow and sunsets are among the best in the world. Towering cliffs, caves and cobblestone beaches make up the Georgian Bay shore where the views are most impressive. The park is home to wildlife such as Black bears, wolves, fishers, porcupines and Massasauga rattlesnakes. This is wilderness - campers should not leave food inside tents to avoid thieving animals!

Several hiking trails begin at Cyprus Lake. Rock formations such as Overhanging Point, Hole in the Wall, Little Fern Cave and The Grotto are fascinating to explore. Hikers can squeeze through rock arches, climb jagged headlands for stunning vistas, or swim off the spectacular rock ledges at Indian Head Cove. The campground operates an amphitheatre, guided hikes and programs, and is open for winter use. The Bruce Trail runs through the park and may also be accessed at Little Cove, east of Warner Bay Rd, where sea stacks with eroded passages are visible. Emmett Lake Road leads to intriguing rock ledges at Halfway Log Dump and Cave Point with its band shell shaped grotto. Terrain is extremely rough, so hikers should be prepared to travel no more than 2 or 3 km. per hour, wear sturdy shoes and carry water.

One of the most overlooked landmarks is Little Fern Cave. No signs mark its location, yet it is only about 100 metres east of the Horse Lake Trail-Bruce Trail junction. Follow the shoreline off the trail to explore several small grottos and passages between jumbled megaliths to the gaping cave entrance that faces directly onto the bay.

Parks Canada information and weather is broadcast locally over 90.7 FM radio.
