Great scenery and some cool cave passages. The cave was a little hard to find, didn’t need to go all the way to the water and it’s under the rocks you are climbing down. There are better passages down and around the main cave...will have to do some rock scrambling. Short but sweet.

We hike A LOT! This trail is not what I would consider to be "easy." Lots of loose rock, steep grades and all. Definitely involved two hands a few times to get up and down at places! It didn't disappoint! Great photos! Nice to be down at the creek and the caves were cool... Yes. There was bat guano everywhere.

This would be an amazing hike if I didn’t have my 3 yo with me. I agree with previous poster, definitely should be rated moderate plus. The trail is not well marked and the sides are steep with straight drop offs. I’m guessing about half way we reached a point where the trail thinned to about a foot wide and the sides had no protection from a fall. Super disappointed we didn’t make it all the way to the caves but no way was I going to go on such a narrow trail with a young child. Good views and some areas of shade from trees though.

Did this hike with 4 kids under 6 because it said it was “kid-friendly” and thought it would be fun to see a cave. I, as an adult, loved the hike! But it was not kid-friendly. The first little bit was easy but becomes much harder as you go and you have to really watch the kids and their footing if you want them to go in the caves. But it was fun! I would just recommend it for older kids and up. Moderate would be a better rating.

We found this little 'trail' while heading to the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Not much of a hike, but cool to dive into the canyon and explore a bit. Not worth a stand-alone trip, but a good diversion.

One of the BEST hikes in my life and it is a little difficult getting in the caves

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.
