Our guided tour was fantastic! Trevor, who serves as the Executive Director of the Westcave Preserve was knowledgeable and gave us time to sit and reflect! The beauty of this place is mind blowing! The hike was great! Sweat a lot in the August heat!

Excellent tour of a beautiful natural grotto and cave. Book in advance and reserve.

The only thing keeping this trail from 5 stars is the fee, which is still pretty reasonably priced. This was a great, easy trail accessible only through a brief guided tour. Our tour group had all ages - from kids to seniors - and everybody enjoyed themselves and made it to the end, though some of the older participants took the stone stairs a bit slowly to be careful. The tour guide was knowledgeable and great with questions, and the waterfall and cave at the end were gorgeous and well worth the trip. The visitor center had a lot of very cool info and a few interesting activities, too.

Guided tour. Not much of a challenge. However very beautiful for plenty of photos especially in Autumn. Also right next to Hamilton Pool so it’s a good day trip when combined together.

Trail closed to cave so it was a prairie walk around. Yuk!

The only downside is that you have to pay for a guided tour to see the cavern. If you are looking for free, this would not be my pick.
