This was a fun hike with my husband and three young boys. Well marked and pretty easy for the little ones. We loved the lookout Tower. There is a cavern that is run by a private company that you can pay to hike but we just hiked the small loop trail.

Short well marked trail of crushed granite. The lookout was cool. 3 story's tall. The CCC buildings, stairs and entrances were awesome. The old photos of cave where fun to look at.

Easy walk, heavily shaded trail. Cool rock features throughout the hike. Saw butterflies, birds, bees, and snakes. Climb the observation tower and gaze for miles towards Inks Lake and open farmland. You can also do a 1.5m guided tour (1.5 hours) into the caverns. It was a great way to cool down after the short hike. Definitely recommend you take the time to visit the caverns in addition to the trail.

Cavern tour is great walking experience with a wonderful history lesson that was an additional bonus.

Family friendly cavern tour. Took a backpack carrier for my 15 month old. She did great on the 1.5 mile tour.

Got lost... but, it was kinda fun!
(Not unsafe lost, a few miles of trail that was not clearly marked, keep looping back. We knew we would eventually pop out near the main parking, so no biggie)

If you are into caverns, this one is pretty standard. It has a few nice features. It takes 1.5 hours to tour the cavern, and tours tend to end around 4p.m. It's worth a view if you've never seen it. Not a workout.
