I last visited Boulder Cave as a 6th header and had a wonderful time. The cave was dark and a little scary (no sound or light is disorienting) but it was a great tome. We hiked the trail, had lunch, and learned about cave ecosystems and the geology of the area. I loved it. My nephew is finally old enough to share the same experience. The school doesn’t do field trips much anymore, but he loved the trail! We were saddened to learn that the bats on the cave are endangered, mostly by human activity. If you go to the cave, make sure to follow all of the instructions and do not disturb the bats. There were a bunch of teenagers (hold the boomer jokes) who were waving their flashlights around and yelling in the cave. Not cool. Overall, great experience. If you have kids between 5-10 it’s a great walk and doable in an afternoon. Highly recommend.

I hadn't been to Boulder Cave since the 7th grade and I've always been curious to go back. This is a fun hike that most people can do. It's about 3 quarter of a mile up and then some down. I didn't have my light with me since I seemed to recall the cave wasn't too deep, but you need one to walk from one end to another. By the time I walked over to the other end, people who were entering were exiting so it can't be too long in the cave. Even if you don't have a light, its still fun to walk in and look out. The scenery on the way to the cave isn't too bad either. There's a nice viewpoint of Devil's Creek and another showing a new cave in the making. It does cost $5 to park, but if you have certain passes, you'll be fine. If you're looking for a fun and fairly easy hike, Boulder Cave is great place to spend some time.

This trail was easy to find, well marked and very well maintained. The forest service has informative signs to explain why and how the caves got there. This is a fee area ($5.00) and a flashlight is necessary to navigate the cave. We had children ages 2-12 with us and everyone had a great time and everyone was able to walk the entire trail. Note- dogs are allowed on the trail but NOT allowed in the cave... I would suggest not taking your dogs.

My friends and I followed “Devil’s creek” all the way down and we found the nature slide! Definitely a hike for anyone of any size! Don’t be discouraged, uphill isn’t so bad and our absolute worth it.

There is a dusty, 1 mile trail up to the waterfall. You can walk over the rocks and go behind or in the chilly waterfall. Then you get to walk through the caves (bring a flashlight). After the caves you have the option to hike down on the trail or through the creek in the ravine. There is a rock "water slide" in the creek. Leashed dogs are allowed on the trail and are now allowed in the caves, too. Parking is $5. There are bathrooms at the trailhead. This trail does close in the Winter. Elevation gain is 300'. The highest elevation of the hike is 2,700'
