Great hike. Beautiful scenery. The last part of the ascent is all upward climb and harder for those of us who are out of shape, but it was still fun and definitely worth it! As others have mentioned, when you get to the fence, go THROUGH the fence to continue on the trail. You can go left or right, but that is for different trails, not for Wave Cave.
This was an overall good hike. You first drive down a dirt road for about 5 miles, which is fun and scenic. I recommend something with a little ground clearance.
The hike was nice and challenging. It got a little hard to follow the trail after you go through the barbed wire fence. I recommend staying left. Close to the end The trail gets pretty steep and requires a little scrambling.
It's completely worth it when you get to the cave. It's a big cave and much cooler than the outside, great views also.
