Awesome trail! Very well maintained. It is quite a bit of work getting down to the cave (and more to get back up) but it's so worth the effort!! We will definitely be back!

Great hike with the wife! Took about an hour to hike in closer to an hour-twenty back out. Be prepared for an uphill climb on the way back out. The reward is so worth the effort. Standing in the mouth of the cave is like standing in front of an air conditioner. Took tons of pictures and saw an armadillo during the hike. We will be bringing our 8 year old son back to this one!

Great family hike. We had a 6 and 3 year old with us. My 6yo hiked the whole thing in about 3 hours, with a snack break at the mouth of the cave. My little one was in and out of the back carrier.

The return is much more up than down.

Moderate trail with some fairly steep descents down to the cave. This was an awesome hike and the most amazing cave I ever saw with the river flowing from within the cave. Was an unexpected find didn't know the river emerged from within the cave. AWESOME. WILL BE BACK FOR SURE.
