Majority of the trail is on a wide gravel road, lots of bikers, great to let dogs run. Use the gps to find the path that leads up to the cave. The ascent is steep but doesn't take long. The cave is cold, but you can explore very far back! A headlamp, gloves and extra layer recommended.

Really enjoyed the hike! The scramble up to the cave was fun and the cave was really neat! Will definitely do it again! Took 4.5 hours.

the way to the trail head is boring ..slightly uphill most of the way..but the way back is down hill the kids had a blast ..from the trail head to the tree line is ok with 3 kids 12 8 and 6 .. the cave entrance watch out coz it's slippery just stick with the big rocks ...besides that the cave is astonishing the kids enjoyed it very much ..too bad the ice closed the rooms at the back

The walk from the parking lot to the trailhead is long and boring, but the hike up to the cave is nice. An amazing experience if you can squeeze through the tight crevices at the back of the cave! It goes much farther than you think! Busy if you go on a weekend though.

Hike is pretty standard cave is amazing! Best to go later in the season when the ice has melted further back so you can go pretty deep. There is also a super fun little cave path just a little ways into the cave on the left. If you follow it you come out at the top of the cave entrance, super cool and an amazing view. Love this spot!
