This is a small interpretive site with an old indian cave dwelling and some beautiful scenic viewing spots. There are no restrooms and not handicap accessible here. The road in is dirt with potholes so be aware. Stop when you hit the wide open area and see a trail to your right. If you continue up the road it becomes a 4x4 road and very closed in on all sides by tree shrubbery. There is no place to turn around so depending on how far up you drive, you will have to back all the way out. Visited 7/8/19 .5miles in 25 mins stopped 4 mins. 359ft elevation gain. Cool information kiosks about native Americans that lived here 2000 years ago I believe. The cave is fairly small, but big enough that once I was inside I could stand up all the way (I'm 6ft tall). If you do the loop you will have some pretty great viewing spots of the valley below and surrounding mountains. Trail is semi steep and bugs can be an annoyance in the early afternoon. Good for kids.

The trail to the cave is at the TRAIL marker. This caused a little confusion for a few cars driving up and we jumped out of car to look at sign but it gave no indication that is where the cave trail was located. So 3 cars continued up the road which about a half mile up became impassable with road washout divots and we all had to back down the road - minding the cliff on the left. Once back down to trail head the sign for the cave is about 25 steps down. Trail is easy and very short to the cave. Stay to right of the trail and it’s just ahead. Information sign at the cave was interesting information. Road is good for cars, trucks and SUV’s , not big enough for a bus. Fun to see it.

Cave was amazing, drive up was beautiful. But the walk to the cave is very short, was hoping for something a little longer.

It was beautiful and really great views! The trails are kinda confusing, there are a lot intersections and no signs until you get to the caves. Caves are really cool!

Perfect for kids. My 2yr old and I did this one together. She hiked the whole thing, and there was a lot to learn on the way.

Found this by accident. An interesting bit Native history. Trail is easy, but a bit steep (my cardio sucks). Dogs did just fine too.

Neat small cave and observation point at the end of a short hike. Note: Forest Road 2300.083 is a steep narrow gravel road with few turnouts.

Took a passenger car up a gravel road about 1.5 miles to get here. Very short trail down to the cave and then a second path over to a scenic location with views of Juniper peak, sunrise peak, Mount Adams, and I believe Blue Lake ridge. Very cool!

Very short but very inspirational for humans. It's an old cave where natives lived. They found tools, bones and even shells from ocean traders in this cave, Awesome view not too far away.
