What a fun thing to do! Bring your own flashlights! Great information from the tour guide. Wouldn't want to get lost in this cave. I held my sister's hand so tight in fear of darkness and bats! LOL It's a safe tour with lots of interesting facts. Nice hiking area behind the cave. If there is water in the lake... More

They have 2 loops to walk a short mile and a longer 2 mile. All the trails are clear and have plenty of space to walk beside someone except for a few spots. There is a few good hills both up and down but nothing my 3 year old can't handle. She likes to go look for turtles and fish.

The cave wasn't open when I went due to bats being in danger of disease but the trail around the lake was nice. There is even a short 1.5 mile trail through the woods that is kept up. The lake is kept clean and there are always wild animals to see.

You'll love this spot for a short hike, but expect some steep hills. There is a short loop and a long loop. I think that cave tours are open now as well.

The trails are nice and slightly steep. My kids were able to navigate with no trouble. It is a beautiful area. The cave recently reopened and has many rules and regs so definitely check with the website to book a tour and get the rules

This is a nice place to get out and hike. Not much else to do here. Good trails. You can view the caves as well.

I go there all the time when I need a little nature time. It is close to the main shopping area so access is easy.

Unfortunately, they only have one tour time and that's 10 am. We missed it, and couldn't go back to see it again. Will try another time. Trails are well kept and the garden is very nice.

I live thirty minutes from Dunbar Cave and have driven quite a few times to enjoy the hiking trails and the lake. I am told that guided cave tours will begin soon. I enjoy the place but it's not somewhere you would spend more than an hour or two.
