One of many protected areas along the Bruce Peninsula, Little
Cove is distinguished by an exceptionally rugged Lake Huron shoreline.
Natural features include barrens, scrub cliffs, palisade woodlands,
and karst pavements. Karst pavements are limestone surfaces with
potholes and twists caused by natural, acidic erosion. Little Cove
contains part of the St. Edmunds Cove.
