We went with our 3 yr old it was a neat place but there wasn't a lot to see since the cave was closed. Glad we got to see it anyway.

Great trail for enjoying nature. We always have fun on our walk. Fishing, hiking, and animal spotting all available. Cave is closed due to bat disease but still enjoyable.

We went just for a little visit and nice place to walk with our baby carrier. The cave is closed but you can still feel the cool air from the mouth of the cave. The area is nice, there are also deer on the trail so please be respectful of their space. Our dogs loved it.

Moderate hiking trails in good condition. Spring is great time of year to visit or in the Fall whent the leaves are turning. Some hike and some run the trails. Couple good sized hills to get the legs burning. Deer are known to be a few feet away and just watch you as you go by. Cave entrance is nice... More

Lots of history here from reading the boards at the cave. Nice walking area. Lots of seating. Great place to fish.

This park is beautiful. Hiking trails are fun. The wildlife are abundant. Plenty of seating nearthe mouth of the cave which is really nice during the summer when it gets unGodly hot. There is a small museum here that features different displays. The staff are always friendly. But it's got one major obstacle. It's not handicap friendly at all. If... More

It is a pretty walk to the cave and I enjoyed reading how the area was used back in the 1800's and early 1900's. It is sad that the cave itself is cordoned off and the bats are gone. An interesting peek into a bygone era.

Dunbar Cave is a very lovely place to hike. The trail is short enough to bring small children, and long enough to get a few miles of hiking in. You can loop around the shorter loop and take the longer loop to extend the distance. The trail goes along Swan Lake where you can see turtles, geese and fish. If... More

What can I say about Dunbar? It's an oasis in the heart of a city, a cool summer getaway for an hour or a day. Bring a picnic lunch and sit by the cooling air of cave entrance, or by water's edge where the ducks congregate. Ample short and longer trails, a nice exhibit hall, clean restrooms. Mostly, though, it... More
