I was a bit hesitant to take this hike after reading some of the reviews, but I'll say this: for the average person with limited hiking experience, the guided 60 minute tour should be fun and adventurous without much demand from your body. The caves are partially lit, with graded and paved walkways, and staircases with railings. The tours are mainly informative, but also allow time to take pictures and video. Spend the $30 and do it.

Went for the 90 minute tour and really enjoyed the cave and the narrative from our guide. There was good combination of geology and history, including the owner of the cave who opened it up and charged visitors for a tour. They are able to document people visiting the cave since the late 19th century, and believe the native Americans have been using it long before. There's a lot more to the story so come check it out.

They have installed flat concrete floors, hand railings and lighting to make the cave more accessible.

We took the short tour (60 minutes). It was an easy tour. There were some stairs and parts of the path were narrowed by the cave walls. It gets chilly so take a jacket. If you have time take the long tour. The cave is spectacular and our 60 minute tour went by fast. The rangers are knowledgeable and patient. Enjoy!

Contained inside Great Basin National Park, the Lehman Caves are the crown jewels for why the area has become a national park. Surrounding areas are fine, but one would question why the area has national park status until taking the caves tour.

We went on the 90 minute Grand Palace tour. The cave is amazing and well worth the visit.

We went on the 90 minute tour. Very easy hike (as long as you aren't afraid of enclosed spaces). Amazing they let you get so close to some of the formations. Sad also to see how many were broken before something was done to preserve the cave.
