Great hike if you are looking for something to get the blood pumping. Parked in the Bidwell hill parking lot of Black rock park and took the trail all the way around for a great 5 mile workout.

Pretty decent incline to get to the caves. Lots of sign of wildcats. Bring a flashlight when u go to look into the nooks and holes.

I noticed other reviewers saying that they couldn't find the cave. When you are at the top, it's beneath you. Keep to the right, when the trail forks, go left. There should be a sign.

More than moderate. Climbing up rocks continuously was tough.
