We went on March 3, 2018. Though it was winter, they do one or two tours a day on winter weekends. It was full, even then! If you want to go in the summer, book well in advance. The guide was awesome as she knew a lot about the cave and could give us a lot of facts (both social and scientific) about the cave. The cave is modernized with steps, cement pathways and lights. Our tour was 1.5 hours and well worth it!

I did try to record the path, but since you are underground, you can not record the path, no GPS signal. The recording and map of this path provided here is most likely the above ground visitor center nature trail loop.

Didn't know this was here, but it was sold out when I showed up. A very kind woman had and extra ticket for a 90 minute tour and gave it to me for free (Thank you!). It was very informative and had some great formations; but I've been to better caves in the US like Carlesbad Caverns. Some tight spaces that you have to bend over or sideways or duck, but no crawling. There are stairs as well.

I was on the 60 minute tour. The guide was a rookie. I would go on the cave tour again only with a more seasoned guide. The 90 minute tour would have been a better choice.

Guided 90 minute tour was really good. Lots to learn and see. Sign up for a tour early or online, they are limited to 20 people and sell out.

I was a bit hesitant to take this hike after reading some of the reviews, but I'll say this: for the average person with limited hiking experience, the guided 60 minute tour should be fun and adventurous without much demand from your body. The caves are partially lit, with graded and paved walkways, and staircases with railings. The tours are mainly informative, but also allow time to take pictures and video. Spend the $30 and do it.

Went for the 90 minute tour and really enjoyed the cave and the narrative from our guide. There was good combination of geology and history, including the owner of the cave who opened it up and charged visitors for a tour. They are able to document people visiting the cave since the late 19th century, and believe the native Americans have been using it long before. There's a lot more to the story so come check it out.

They have installed flat concrete floors, hand railings and lighting to make the cave more accessible.

We took the short tour (60 minutes). It was an easy tour. There were some stairs and parts of the path were narrowed by the cave walls. It gets chilly so take a jacket. If you have time take the long tour. The cave is spectacular and our 60 minute tour went by fast. The rangers are knowledgeable and patient. Enjoy!

Contained inside Great Basin National Park, the Lehman Caves are the crown jewels for why the area has become a national park. Surrounding areas are fine, but one would question why the area has national park status until taking the caves tour.

We went on the 90 minute Grand Palace tour. The cave is amazing and well worth the visit.

Fun cave to go with the family

We went on the 90 minute tour. Very easy hike (as long as you aren't afraid of enclosed spaces). Amazing they let you get so close to some of the formations. Sad also to see how many were broken before something was done to preserve the cave.
