I was staying with family in the area so we walked to the Eramosa Karst Conservation Area. It was a nice refuge in the middle of typical suburban sprawl; you almost forget about all the houses and traffic in the area, and the Karst features are interesting. HOWEVER, there was a lot of litter on the property. And since we... More

Spend a good 1.5-3 hours here and take your time having a look around. It's quite the underrated conservation area. BUT it's true, the caves may be underwhelming if you're expecting something you can walk around in and explore: they're not very deep. I still highly recommend it for solo or family hiking. :)

I live only a few miles from this spectacular place it is a nice walk and interesting things to see. It is best to go on a nice day so you can explore, take a snack and water with you. Once you start your adventure you will soon forget you are surrounded by surveys. Have fun.

beautiful to walk through the trails, especially in the summer where the flowers are in bloom and all the trees have leaves. Seeing the caves are geological formations are very interesting. They aren't caves that you can walk deep into but still interesting to see. Make sure you bring a flashlight as one cave you can drop down about 4... More

Lots of caves and geological features in here. Great trails. There is even a big cave to the east that most people probably will never find if they just walk around the main trails. The only down side is that they charge for parking. Really no reason to charge for parking. You can enter the from the trails at the... More

We have not been for some time but the last visit we made was an very enjoyable family walk. The trails are safe, well maintained and offer beautiful views to allow one to enjoy the great out doors.

This is a very interesting place in the fall, but every season offers something different. Take a delightful hike along the trails here and see the waterfalls, the splits in the rock and the beautiful fall leaves! A very nice easy hike!

The long trail ended with disappointment. The picture shown here makes the "cave" seem quite impressive. In relativity its a crack in a rock about 6 feet deep.
