can't enter the cave.
A great hike up the side of the mountain and back down. I had 3 kids with me ages (2-4). They struggled a little with the incline, but did great on the way back down. If you have younger kids, I would recommend cutting through the nature trial sections to avoid the steeper incline. It was hard on my youngest. Beautiful walk through the woods.
It was a short trail mostly paved. You are not allowed to enter the cave which was a disappointment.
Walk to the cave is very short although the woman in the visitor center was very nice and informative. The Native American mannequins in the cave just make it cheesy.
Very cool cave, but exploring is very limited. Oh, and there are Native American statues that take away from the cave
The cave is amazing and the rangers on site are very knowledgeable about its history. The cave is definitely worth a visit. That being said, the nature trail itself is nice but nothing spectacular. You could get to the cave via another trail and bypass the nature trail altogether and you wouldn't be missing much.
