Bear Cave trail is a walk under, around, through and over gigantic sandstone boulders. The huge rocks form a number of rock shelters and narrow passageways. You can wander through these stone monoliths or walk to the edge of the bluff for great scenic views of the surrounding valley.

I recommend doing this with the interpreter on the guided hike with the park employee. Check with the visitor center for schedule. There is some interesting history with this place.

Nice easy hike with great views, big rocks and a cave to boot. Well worth the stopover for such a short hike.

Fun little hike. A bit close to the highway in spots, but worth checking out for sure. The rock formations are beautiful.

Loved it. The best part is climbing the rocks at the end.

This is a very short trail, but great for scrambling over some rocks and a great view from the top of the rocks.
