went here tonight to beat the heat. I brought a fleece and didn't need it at all, felt so good down there lol. I also went at 5pm on a Monday and had the place to myself. It was awesome!! highly recommend. And I left my dog at home d/t risk of bat and racoon feces...

When you pull up, it's hard to tell where the opening is until you see a random person emerge out of the brush. The stairs are fun and, even just going in a ways, was worth the trip.

Very neat location. The cave entry is very ominous and spooky. You instantly descend a set of stairs into the cave. Complete darkness from the point in, so bring light! To reach the cave end you must crawl twice along the way (towards the end) but it's not too tight. The sign notifies of bats, but we weren't lucky enough to see any.

Easy, nothing too it. Scenic drive to cave. Coolness of cave was welcome.

There is really no trail to Boyd's Cave. You literally drive up to the cave entrance and climb down the stairs. Thus the low rating. The cave is really cool, however, and worth the effort. Bring a flashlight and hard hat and a jacket as it is quite cool inside. To see the extent of the cave you will have to crawl through a very low ceiling on the right fork of the cave. Beautiful high desert terrain above ground.

This is a fun and easy to find cave. Bring your own supplies, there is nothing out there. It is literally a hole in the ground that has a ladder and you climb down, then begin walking through the cave. I saw a really gross looking cave spider web down there though, and I won't lie, it freaked me out.
