This is historically interesting, but I prefer a not so well known area in the park where you can visit the Collins family home. There's a ticket stand next to it and a path that leads to Crystal Cave which was discovered by Floyd Collins. He would lead tours there (hence the ticket stand). Crystal Cave is closed since about 10 years ago, it was vandalized by a group of idiots.

Great handicap acceess, but I preferred the old trail that allowed one to go to the entrance of sand cave. A great and terrible history of caving happened here and the Story of Floyd Collins is an epic tale.

Short and informative about a local that researched a cave close to a main road with hopes of a tourist attraction. Short trail - only .1 mi, boardwalk.
