Charged my Visa $150 after I returned the tubing equipment late when the shuttle was canceled. The manager Angela was rude and condescending. Currently working with Visa for the refund. Won't be back!

We went here expecting a big hike but I will say it was quite short! Its beautiful though. Just a 4 star rating simply b/c its quite a small place to be. $6 an adult for a short hike seems a bit steep to me.

Beautiful gorge, lovely hiking trails, some very unique shops and Artisans, from top quality leather shop, hand blown glass and glass artisan, to renowned artist Kreso with his working gallery in town. Small town with lots to offer. Fresh bread bakery, with a posted schedule...More

Great place for a hike.. you can even tube down the river.. Hike is almost completely in the trees so its a great place in the hot summer. Also lots of camping (although I did not do that)

Just outside the city of Elora is a quarry. A former limestone quarry, the Elora Quarry is better known as the "old swimming hole." It was a popular swimming spot long before it became a 79 acre day-use conservation area in 1976. Elora Quarry offers...More

It's two different places. You will have to go in town to get to the quarry. It will take around 50 minutes. I hope I was helpful.

Well, I would say that each side of the gorge has different views. Let's say the Parking area side and Tubing launching zone side. The P side with high cliffs which was fenced provides stunning view of water far below. From... More
