A great hike and an amazing tour especially when you understand the history. You can hike the educational trail for free as many people do each day. Rangers are helpful and friendly to all.

I have been here often, the hike is fully paved. It can be a little steep at times for young kids, but not so long that it's unbearable. I would for sure make reservations and bring a jacket for inside the cave. The tour guides...More

You complete the hike on your own, but you can only enter the caves if you've purchased a ticket for a guided tour. Buy online ahead of time!
