Very beautiful trail. Amazing views. Continued on 325 and then cut down to HWY 12 via NF-1400. Beyond the ridge the road becomes a bit more rugged and winding between narrow trees. Nothing too extreme just take your time slowly. It’s a fun drive.

Nice, mellow hike. Not too many people. Enjoyed seeing the rock climbers in the beginning of the path. My dog did find a rattlesnake in the middle of the path, but it quickly retreated under a tree. Still a little scary, suggest being wary.

Wanted to do this one again before October, but sadly the trail is closed until May 2019. Guess I’ll have to wait ‘til then...

Trail is currently closed

trail is off to the left upon arrival. Great trail, well maintained and very beautiful. kid friendly

It was was fairly easy. Loose dirt and paths do get pretty narrow. Inclines and declines werent too bad. After a mile or two we came upon a fork and went right. About another mile we came upon river and headed back. Our dog kept getting attacked by the bees, something to think about if youre taking your fur child.

Lots of FUN, Bring a flashlight!

This was so fun! It's a short hike up a trial that follows devils creek at the bottom of a canyon. There is a lovely waterfall on the outside back of the cave. If you want to climb the large rocks and hike behind the waterfall (we did), be very careful as it is very slippery. The inside of the cave is really cool, with devils creek running thru it. Stay on the path, don't walk in the water (no idea how deep it is, currents or rocks) and try not to touch anything due to microorganisms that live there. The whole hike including the cave was so beautiful.....bring your CAMERA!

Awesome views at the top of the ridge, we drove farther than the directions of where the GPS located bethel ridge and I’m glad we did. Trails are awesome for off roading with atv, bikes, and 4x4. I would say it’s an easy trail for off roading. We camped at the ridge and it was a beautiful and amazing view all throughout. Be warned, there’s A LOT of bugs and flies, bring a spray/ lotion, I wish we brought citronella with us. Camp fires are also not allowed although we’ve seen some pits made by people. All in all it was a great trip.

Nice trail that has a loop through the bat colony cave. Did not see any bats!

Google sent us in from the West but the road is washed out. Come in from the East side. Paved roads the whole way.
Great maintained trail up the caves. As you start heading downhill you are almost there. Make sure to do the scramble to the waterfall over the logs and rocks to the back cave. Then head back and do the big cave which will lead you through the pitch black and back up to the main trail.

Don’t forget flash light and water friendly shoes :)

beautiful, challenging, saw a herd of mountain goats!

Be aware that the sign that directs you to Spiral is missing. You'll need to keep a close eye for the Y that sends you left up to Spiral.
Also a section of the trail to Shellrock lake is under water so you'll need to find away around or be willing to get your feet soaked.

was a quick and easy hike. tool my 14 month old with on a pack, and she did great!

Great picnicking area and lots of parking and restrooms. Easy one mile hike, and fun trail that curves through the cave. Didn't see any bats. Make sure and have a flash light. Very neat cliffs, streams and walking trails. Fun/easy trail for kids.

Went with my girlfriend and her 8 yr old daughter well maintained easy hike

just went up there yesterday and it was closed :( so just a heads up but there's some trails up by swamp creek we went to.

It was an easy hike to the waterfall, we backpacked our 2 year old son. The cave was awesome (you definitely need a good flashlight, your phone light doesn’t work very well). The waterfall was too crowded for my personal liking, but was pretty. You do have to trek through some water, and over rocks, but nothing too bad, there’s rocks in the water to step on so you don’t get your shoes wet. Overall, it was a fun short hike, we will probably go again, and take our 7 year old with this time. ( Forgot to review last summer )

I'd say the first two miles are Moderate as the trails are identifiable and in decent shape. After that it's a crap shoot of being able to even find the trail, let alone being able to scramble up it. Lots of loose rock and scree as the author notes, which could be fun if you're looking for an adventure. A HARD adventure.

Easy and close in. Nice views of Tieton River and big basalt cliffs. Fun swinging bridge.

Great climb/hike. Go in the fall. Less traffic (rock fall in gully from other partys) . Easy climb. Great view of Rimrick Lake and Divide Ridge..

Beautiful day to go. Tamaracks were golden. Mountain goats were out. Along with both mountains.

Easy short hike to a great view. The road to trailhead is very wash boardy but gets you up high before you start to hike.

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 is not moderate in my book. Lots of loose, sliding shale. Trail is definitely NOT moderately trafficked. You are on your own, unless rattlesnakes count. This is for dedicated backwoods hikers who like a little more challenging terrain. Discover pass required.
