Lodgepole Village to Crytal Cave


I have read that you need to buy tickets for Crystal cave at least 90 minutes in advance to allow for travel time. Does it really take 90 minutes to get from lodgepole village to Crystal Cave? If someone would please post the drive time for the 14 miles to the parking lot and 0,5 mile hike to the cave, it would be very much appreciated.

You can buy your tickets at Lodgepole.

It really only takes about 30 minutes at the most to get to the cave but if there are sloooooow drivers and campers it will take longer being stuck behind them.

This rule is to allow the slowest people time to get there - the slowest drivers, the slowest walkers.
