Nature at it's Best at Scenic Caves! #NaturalHigh #SummerAtBlue

Once previously, I had visited the Blue Mountain area, and I was about eight or ten years old.  Quite possibly the same age as my son is now.  It was a lot of fun to watch the wonderment of the region through his eyes, much as it would of been for me over thirty years ago.  On that previous visit we saw pottery being made, went
to the slide rides and explored the Scenic Caves.  I was pretty thrilled to return to the area, and have the opportunity to introduce my children to Scenic Caves Nature Adventures. The caves are still there, but now there is so much more!

Scenic Caves Nature Adventures is for the young and the young at heart.  Running shoes or hiking boots are a must for a spending a day here.  To be very honest, the Scenic Caves were not for someone like me with a back injury, but I certainly made the most out of what I was able to enjoy.  However, for my very able-bodied children this was an awesome destination, which they loved and haven't stopped talking about since we got back home.  (my review is based on their observations, as most I didn't see first hand)

A day at Scenic Caves Nature Adventures can include any and all of the following:
  • self guided tour of caves, caverns and nature trails
  • suspension bridge
  • thunderbird twin zip line
  • mini gold
  • train and tractor rides
  • trout pound 
  • 3 hour eco adventure tour - treetop canopy walking and ziplining

Nature Trails, Caves, Caverns & Lookouts

Deep inside Blue Mountain at the highest part of the Niagara Escarpment are the Scenic Caves.  The caves were once carved out by glacial ice and reveal secrets of our past.  The trails to the caves were well marked, and the caves were easy to explore.  The kids loved seeing the flora and fauna of the area and seeing the caves.  It is a surreal feeling, yet very peaceful.  

Thunder Bird ~ Canada's Longest Twin Zip Line

The Thunder Bird is a half mile zip line, which can be controlled by the rider to determine their own speed.

My children were incredibly keen to get a chance to go down the zip line.  (I was nervous at the thought of it, but knew it would be an experience they would never forget.)  I was really impressed to see that everyone is given instruction on a practice zip line before doing the real thing.

It was absolutely a thrill of a lifetime and something both kids would love to do again, sometime soon!

A day at the Scenic Caves Natural Adventures is a day well spent.  Chose your comfort level and let the adventure begin!

I have heard such great things about the Scenic Caves yet I've never been.

While you won't see me on the ziplines, I would go on the treetop canopy walk.

Blue Mountain has so much to offer.
