Very rocky but fairly easy. Make sure it is a dry day with no chance of rain. Pretty interesting little place.

wildcat cave trail is mis-marked, if you cross the foot bridge and go down the ravine you will be crossing private property and the owner can get very cross. To be safe follow the marker posts up the hill then go several miles south go to the river bottom and walk north until you come to that same ravine as you have been told. You walk east north east up the ravine and the cave is on your right or to your south as you walk. It is really not much of a cave, it starts out about 6 feet tall at the entrance and the closes to nothing in about 4 feet, again, not much of a cave..So, is it really worth upsetting the property owner, please RESPECT PRIVATE PROPERTY

Very family friendly and beautiful! We plan to come back when we have more time to see more of the park.

Good fun. We needed some fresh air and the kids had energy to burn. :) And, BONUS: No flu on the trails! ;) Perfect for a sunny, winter day.

Nice short hike down a beautiful, secluded ravine

This is a super easy hike as long as the ravine is dry. The cave is a neat bit of history. Very Indiana Jones!
