The cave itself was a mere pile of rocks. The trail itself was fun, but without anything unique or particularly scenic.

This was an easy hike with a great historical payoff at the finish. Took the Westville Feeder trail which runs into the blue blazed Regicides trail...Cave is less than half a mile from this junction. Cave has an interesting colonial history. Edward Whalley and William Goffe, Two of the 59 judges who King Charles to death in 1649, fled to this spot after Charles II was restored to the throne in 1660 and sought revenge for his executed father. The two men stayed here for an undetermined time starting on May 15 1661 and eventually fled to Hadley Massachusetts. Cool stuff!!
