We'll get to the bottom of this!

The path starts with the Ice Cave, remaining at a cool 4 degrees Celsius in summertime. At the top of a path in the forest, an iron railing sits at the opening of a large crevice leading us 20 metres below amidst magnificent rock formations. The trail is filled with spots to explore and includes a few benches. We could easily recognize George Washington's profile, naturally sculpted by the shapes in the wall above our heads. While we did not see a bear in the Bear Cave, a small bat escaped. My young speleologist just loved the Fat Man's Misery passage. Its 36-centimetre width, at is narrowest, it is not for everyone. Fortunately, there is an alternative path. Since my last visit, they've added a 126-metre-long suspension bridge, the longest in Ontario, included with the admission. A wagon ride takes you there (or a 10-minute walk). It is 4 feet wide and I was told we feel lots of exciting sway in the middle, 25 metres above the valley and the stream. Wow!
