Super cool destination and a fun route up. Kids especially like all the flat rock faces they can scamper on.

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.
