This little hike was so fun!! The trail leads to the cave system or follow all the way down to Oak Creek. The caves were way better than I anticipated based on other people’s reviews. It’s a series of caves/tunnels in the side of the cliff (watch the kiddos!). It’s easy getting into the first cave (right after the ‘no vandalism’ sign) and then gets progressively more challenging getting into the next two

We expected to find an indent but we found a cave entrance with red rock tunnels that went farther back! It was fun to explore and get some cool pictures too!

Parking: Space for about 4 or 5 cars right at the trailhead (which is right off the 179).

Trail: Super short hike to the “cave”. The trail starts off with a easy walk but then requires some moderate bouldering to get into the cave. Would not designate this as easy, but doable for most hikers. The “cave” which really isn’t much of a cave, more like a small indent in the rock face. Still fun though! Especially for older grade school kids. You can take a trail further down to the river.

Overall an ok hike to do once or twice.

The trailhead parking entrance is actually a very short unmarked driveway of a small dirt lot, just south of Oak Creek Cliffs Drive. This is a very quick and easy hike just to see a cave. The climb down the boulders to the cave is at the end of the dirt trail. Fun to do once or maybe twice... been there, done that. Recommend to have a hiking buddy for the climb, just in case.
Free parking. No restrooms.
