Warsaw Caves Conservation Area was closed for eight years before local hero Ian Guest took on the job of running the campground and park in 1999. Lucky for hikers that he did too, because the 224ha (553-acre) site includes some of Ontario’s best caves, including one with ice that doesn’t melt, plus a lot of potholes, an underground stream, several alvars and a good view of the Drummer moraine. The caves were created when meltwater from the Indian River spillway that drained glacial Lake Algonquin to glacial Lake Iroquois weakened the limestone bedrock. Bring a flashlight, a helmet and solid boots to explore the caves. This trail guide includes Scenic Lookout Trail and Limestone Plain Trail.
