Difficulty:Level 3
Start at Trailhead:11:00am

Singhampton Caves in the sprin!

This hike is shown on Map 23 on your Bruce Trail guide. Singhampton Caves are what most of us would call crevasses. This is not a spelunking hike. The crevasses were created when huge blocks broke away from the cliff faces.

There are cliffs along several parts of this trail. These provide gorgeous views. Please, please be cautious at the edges.

In the caves trail itself, we will also be walking on snow and ice. Please, no open toed shoes. No running shoes with worn tread. Sturdy hiking boots or shoes, ankle support, with good treads are strongly recommended. Hikers with inadequate footwear may not be allowed to entered the caves portion of the trail.


The pickup at Yonge and York Mills will be at 9:00am! The parking lot at the trailhead is small, so we appreciate car pooling more than usual.

  1. From Yonge and York Mills, go east on the 401 to Highway 410. Make sure you are in the collector lanes.
  2. Go north, all the way, on Highway 410 until merges with Highway 10.
  3. Continue north on Highway 10, passing through Orangeville.
  4. At the lights at Highway 89, turn left and drive towards Shelburne. Actually, you still are on Highway 10.
  5. The next traffic lights should be Simcoe Country Road 124. Turn right, and drive north to the town of Singhampton.
  6. At Singhampton, Road 124 turns right. Do not follow this. Continue driving north on what is now Osprey/Clearview Town Line.
  7. The next right-turn intersection will be County Road 91, possibly signed as Duntroon Road. Turn right.
  8. You will pass a quarry on your right. The Bruce Trail parking lot will be on your left, the north side, at the top of a big hill that drops off to the east.
  9. Park.

Google Maps directions may or may not agree with the above.


We will start at the Bruce Trail club's parking lot on County Road 91, just west of Duntroon. From there we will hike from BTC km 29 to the Singhampton Caves at BTC km 35.4, returning on the same route. On the way back to the cars we will explore the new Franks Lime Kiln side trail, a feature recently restored and opened to the public. After, we can do dinner at Mylar & Loreta's in Singhampton. We know a bunch of you are looking forward to this. Total hike distance (to be confirmed) is about 12km.
