It was an amazing experience, easy walk. The stairs and hill climb at the end was the most tiring part, only cause you have been walking already. Already have people asking where this is and that they want to go.

Dress warm!! It's really cool to see - highly recommend it! The terrain is bumpy in places but the hiking is moderate difficulty. Make sure to bring a strong flashlight or rent one of theirs - your phone will not be bright enough. But be sure to turn them off at some point to experience the total darkness.

Being from the east coast we had never seen anything like this. Rent the lantern and put on a coat and gloves and enjoy, You are 80 feet below the surface in a very dark tunnel-like cave. This is a mile into the end and then a mile out. You just have to really watch where your feet are stepping and take it slow. Everyone that can needs to do this once.

Stopped here on the last day of September - they close on October 1. No problem finding parking early in the morning. I wore a couple of layers of clothing sine it was 45 degrees when I got out of my car. I brought my own flashlight which was brighter than anything you could rent. Interesting hike in and out - not as spectacular as Carlsbad or Mammoth, but what the heck. I found the hike easy and worthwhile.

We spontaneously visited and were fortunate that we had clothing layers ready. It's consistently cool and damp inside the cave and as expected DARK! The powerful flashlight rental was worth the $5, I just wish I had brought gloves. Walking in a lava tube is similar but also very different from the caves I have visited on the east coast.
