The Spirit Rock Outpost & Lodge is located on the Bruce Trail, a network of trails with over 1000 km of beautiful scenery along the Niagara Escarpment between Tobermory and Niagara Falls.  The Spirit Rock Lookout and The Corran are located on a 5.6 km loop trail that descends the escarpment via a spiral staircase where you can hike along the water to Bluewater Park.


Wiarton is also home to Bruce’s Caves, a unique series of caves along the escarpment formed by post glacial Lake Algonquin 7000-8000 years ago.  Enjoy this landmark, just a short drive from the Spirit Rock, alone or combine it into a full day of adventure as you explore Skinners Bluff and hike the 11 km back to the caves.


Rural Rocks, just 2 km West of the Spirit Rock, is a rugged rocky trail exploring in-land Bruce Peninsula along with its Maple-Birch-Balsam forest and local fauna.


To the North you will find the beautiful Cape Croker Reserve with a series of three side trails.  Here you can get a view from the top hiking along Malcolms Bluff, Jones Bluff, and/or Sydney Bluff.


For more information about other hikes in and around the area see The Spirit Rock Outpost for Bruce Trail maps, guides and goods.






laceyRent a kayak or paddle board to see our best side (from the water).  Rentals are available hourly in Bluewater Park.  Now you can paddle along the escarpment taking in  the shoreline of Georgian Bay.

See the Outpost for advice of where you can find access to the multiple in-land lakes and river systems along the Peninsula and don’t forget your fishing pole!






                Whether you are looking for a quiet inland lake, to cast from the riverbank or dock or to get out into the deep blue waters of Georgian Bay this is the place for you to bring your rod.  What can you catch?  We have salmon, rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, lake trout, large and small mouth bass, northern pike, perch, and pan fish.

Need a rod?  Get one from our Outpost..Live Bait?  We have that too.  From spring time spawn to ice hut huddles The Spirit Rock can send you in the right direction.
