Description

The edge of the Niagara Escarpment is cut here with narrow, deep crevices, and you can clamber through the tight fissures. These crevice caves, open to the sky, were created when huge blocks broke away from the cliff face. Mosses and liverworts form a moist green carpet on the crevice walls, and 27 species of fern have been recorded within this small area. The blue-blazed Standing Rock and Caves Side Trail heads down the Escarpment to a rock pillar, isolated 80 m north of the edge. It is a testament to the powers of erosion over eons.

Short Run: Park on Eagle Crescent, follow the Bruce Trail: Blue Mountains Segment for about 500m, then take the Standing Rock and Caves Side Trail.
