The limestone crevices are a spectacular natural feature of the area. They are located approximately 15.2 km south of Denare Beach on Highway 167, an unmarked road will be on the right. (If you get to Meridian Creek, you have gone too far.) The road will lead to a place to park and follow the trail east a short distance to the crevices.
Please be extremely careful when exploring the crevices, watch and supervise your pets & children closely.
Please remember to respect the natural beauty of this area and take all garbage with you.
These crevices occur in carbonate rock that is part of the Ted River Formation, deposited on the Canadian Shield during the Ordovician period 500 to 440 million years ago. The crevices are recent features, formed since the glaciers from the last ice age receded from the area about 10,000 years ago. Water percolates along thin cracks in the rock. As water freezes, it expands. The repeated expansion of ice during the freeze-thaw cycle in fall and spring forces the joints to expand, wedging the rocks apart and eventually forming the crevices. The crevices range from up to 12 metres (40 ft.) deep. Even in the summer, you can look down and see snow or ice at the bottom of some of the deeper crevices.
