this is one of my all time favorite short hikes. I love to wander past the resurgence (cave), down the creek. after reading some of the reviews, I can't believe some are saying they can't find the cave. The creek running out of the mountain at the bottom of the hill on the left IS the cave. it is not a big explorable cave, although the very karst landscape very well may contain some caving opportunities. The Sheltowee Trace Trail goes past the resurgence, across the creek from the cave. I hiked a mile or so of this trail and there was nothing really remarkable there.
