  The Grotto, Bruce Peninsula NP
by windsorgirl

From the Cypress Lake Campground in Bruce Peninsula National Park you can take several routes to the crystal clear, cold waters of Georgian Bay.

I walked along the easiest path, the Georgian Bay Trail which will get you to the coast the quickest along a cedar mulched path, through pine forest. It is mostly level with viewpoints of Horse Lake along the way. It will take about 20 minutes until you reach the escarpment at Halfway Rock Point. Here, you will want to take your time and scramble over the rocks for some great views to the north and south.

A little further north on the trail you will reach the Natural Arch, and then a few minutes later, the Grotto. Apparantly Scuba divers can enter the Grotto by and underwater passage on the Georgian Bay side.

Many people spend the day here, picnicking and swimming. For the easiest route back, return to the parking area via the same trail.

If you are looking for some peace and solitude be forwarned that hordes of campers with children and dogs begin to descend upon this trail around 10am.

Directions: Park at the Head of Trails Parking area at the Cypress Lakes Campground off of Hwy 6.
