We took our four children ages 7, 8, 10 and 16 through the cave. Be prepared with good shoes, head lamps and lots of water. Some of us didn't have the best shoes, and only my husband had a headlamp. We held onto our flashlights, but as a mom is was difficult for me not being able to see all... More

We enjoyed walking up the rock, but I'd skip the cave unless you are prepared. You would need a light and possibly a guide as there aren't any trail markers once in the cave. The cave has lots of tight spots and could be difficult for some people. We went in February and it was about 65 degrees outside, but... More

We climbed to the summit and experienced breath taking views, explored the caves and ran the trails. The park rangers were super nice and helpful, can't wait to go again!!!

This is a wonderful park and although the 'hike up' to the top of the rock does not look difficult from below...it is a little bit of a work out. Taking time to appreciate the views makes the hike up quite manageable. The caves at the top are fun exploration for the kids and those adults looking for just a... More

difficult to get to. we weren't limber enough to go to where it looked to be the cave . you must wear good, gripping shoes, or you will slip on the smooth rocks

DO NOT enter the cave without a flashlight and really good shoes. ALSO, NOT at all a place for children. Dangerous!!!!!!

Go early in morning before heat gets going, not much shade. Worth the climb, stop take breaks, and when you get to the top you will be amazed at the beautiful scenery. So many other trails and nice rangers who give you suggestions. Clean bathrooms. Bring your water and wear good shoes.

The cave is an experience, that’s for sure. You twist, slither and climb your way along in the cold, wet dark, trying to spot those magic white arrows that point the way out. Meanwhile you’re thinking - they DO lead out, right? I didn’t miss a turn, did I?? My kids (7 and 10) were a good balance of terrified... More

I guess they do free tours a few times a year. We got there around 9:00 for that, and we were the only ones there. So basically had a private tour, he told us about history of the rock, plant life and other tidbits as expected. This is a great day trip, even better is the cave. We did some... More
