This map needs to be updated. This is no longer a loop and it is unsafe to get right up to the cave. Looking towards the cave the right hand part of the “loop” is closed due to earthquake damage. Left hand half is fine. However it is best to turn left towards Summit Road rather than attempt to get to the cave.

this is not a kid friendly track at the moment, it has obviously had no repairs since the earthquake and the right side of the loop is closed...not that we saw that till we got to the end having nearing broken my ankle several times. I would highly recommend not doing this track after any rain.

Wouldn’t do it after a rainfall, it’s quite dangerous as it is!
It is closed but you can access it.

Recommend starting counterclockwise as the footing is better for the down hill portion. Hiking poles a good idea also.

Pretty fast and relatively easy with great views from the cave and a nice seating area to sit back and relax.
