Fun hike. My son and I took a cave tour with guide and several Boy Scouts last summer. It was a highlight of our trip.

Great hike to the main cave entrance. Ladder works and the rope is attached to the end of the ladder. Not too cold for this time of season. Lots of fun, plenty of rock formations, lots of exploring, with pretty cool water flowing deep in parts of the cave.
Need a permit, map and essentials for cave exploration. I highly recommend going here and spending the entire day inside.

Such a beautiful hike there. Somewhat steep going up. But it reminded me of a rainforest with how much foliage there was. The cave is still open, however I didn't go in. A permit is needed to enter the cave in order to reduce white nose syndrome. Gorgeous hike all in all.

The cave is open July 1st. Ladder has been fixed. Don't forget to disinfect before going into the cave.

Cave opens up after July 31 2013 but the sidetracks are still really nice... We were following fresh mtn cat trails for most of the hike but still nice and moderate

A short and mildly demanding hike. The REAL attraction is the cave at the end of the trail which has been closed for a number of seasons (2010-present) due to White Nose Syndrome found in the local bat population. Once open the cave is spectacular and easily navigable with a headlamp, helmet, and map. If you pass the entrance to the cave there are some larger 'band-shell' type caves above.

The cave is currently closed for bat protection. There is still a very short hike to the caves, but the nearby longer hikes are much better options.
