The park conducts tours open to the general public. These ranger-led tours are conducted on the first and third weekends of the month. Reservations are preferred, with tours limited to ten persons. If attendance allows, others will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. For reservations, call the park office. Tours depart from the park's front entrance at 8 a.m. during the summer months and 9 a.m. during the winter months. Special arrangements for clubs, scout groups, school groups, or any group of more than 8 persons is available, depending upon staffing. Please call the park office for more information. The park reserves the right to limit the number of hikers in a tour group or to cancel trips due to weather conditions. For all tours/general hiking in the Franklin Mountains, wear good shoes, preferably hiking boots, weather-appropriate clothing, and travel in pairs. Always bring plenty of water and snacks. Cell phones are advised if available.

You will most likely get lost, there’s a fork that takes you to this trial or to Mundy’s gap trail that eventually connects back. Just stay to the right, they all go the same way anyways

Easy hike

Fun trail, it's possible to get off track but not too bad. Once you turn to start going up the mountain just keep going up the trail and you'll run right into the cave. It was pretty awesome.

Good hike. Take water, there is no shade (one picnic spot 1/3 of the way) until you reach the caves. The uphill battle to get there can be weary.
