Sandstone Castle caves are access via the Twin Falls Trail located in the Richland Creek Wilderness NF. It partially requires a bushwhack and requires two river crossings while following Richland creek and the climbing bluffs past Twin Falls. There above the twin falls you will make your way up on the left-side trail and cross the first creek (Big Devil’s Fork) and there is a great campsite directly above the two falls. This is also where you will start your ascent to the Sandstone Castle. Simply following along the rising ridgeline between the two creeks, you will start a steep climb on a more primitive trail. Although it can usually be seen just remember to hike up between the two creeks to the top and you can’t go wrong.

A stunning backpack into some caves. Rugged terrain, some bushwhacking at the second half of the trail.
