Super easy hike. Pet friendly. Not too hard on the knees. Cave was small and not too scary. Didn't see any bats. Views to cave are amazing! Signs with history and a great plus!

This was an AWESOME experience!
Hike isn't too bad my 3 year old twins love it. Make sure you wear comfortable sturdy shoes that you don't mine getting wet, if you want to see the water fall.

Great hike with a few steep parts, such as the climb out of the caves. The Kiddos will get a kick out of the caves

I hike this every year atleast twice. It's a great, short trail for people with kids or people that aren't avid hikers and need to start slowly to get in hiking shape. :) I'd definitely recommend going mid week in the a.m. to beat the crowds and the heat. There is a nice day use picnic area and a place for you to dip your toes in the river after the hike if you desire. If you do bring your kiddos, PLEASE read the interpretive signs along the way that caution about cleaning your shoes upon entering and leaving the cave, not shouting in the cave or pointing your flashlight up, and staying on trail. This area has been shut down before because people didn't observe these basic rules and trail etiquette.

My kids loved this hike and the cave was great. They really liked the waterfall and the pool it created.

Boulder Caves requires a Northwest Forest Pass or there is $5 use fee and box to pay. There is plenty of paved parking and picnic tables in the shade by the parking lot. Two sets of pit toilets. The trail to the cave was a decent dirt path. Lots of families and small children out hiking it. Bring a flashlight, headlamp, and at least your phones flashlight for the cave. It is very dark in there and it's one way in and one way out. Our trip was an easy 1.5 miles roundtrip. Even at the beginning of September, it was pretty warm on the trail and in the cave.

Very fun and easy trail for families with little ones. We hiked back in the water (not deep) and the kids had a blast.
