Hike downhill for about half of a mile and stay to your left. You'll see a clearing on your right. Look for that "V" tree.If you accidentally miss the clearing, you'll almost immediately see a bluffline on your left. If you see this you've gone too far. Walk to the back of the clearing and you'll notice you're standing on a bluffline so be careful here! Your actually standing above the cave. There's a trail to your right leading down. After a good rain there will be a waterfall right next to the cave.Show more
