“Great detour from Nevada 50”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

I drove to northern California from Bryce Canyon National Park via Utah 21 and then Nevada 50 ("the Loneliest Road in America"). The whole drive was very scenic, but the most worthy part (albeit a bit of a detour) is the Lehman Caves in Great Basin National Park. The caves alone are worthy the detour, not to mention the snow-capped Wheeler Peak (in April).

“Breathtakingly Beautiful”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We took the 90 minute tour and to be honest it wasn't enough time to take all of the beauty inside the cave. Well worth the drive to the park, and an excellent experience to novice cave visitors. Our ranger guide ,Katie , was informative,funny, and was nonplussed by any questions. This was one of the highlights of our trip in Nevada

“Very nice cave system”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is a nice cave to visit. The walk thru the cave takes about one and one-half hours. It is an easy walk with only a few slopes. There a a few narrow spots but the photo opportunities are numerous.

This was one of the nicest caves in the west.

“close up cave experience”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

$10 for a 1 hour trip was totally worth it. The attractive female park ranger cindy was educational and informative. Remember to bring a strong flash light and extra clothes. There are only 2 tours per day. Make your appointment early before the 20 spots are filled. Obese people might fail to go through some of the narrow passages in the cave

“Worth the trip.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We've done the 60 minute tour three times now, really doesn't get old! I would like to try the 90 minute tour someday. CALL AHEAD to find out the tour schedules, and put your name on the list if you can, because the tours book up. We always forget to do that, and end up wasting time in the gift shop/cafe waiting! Oh, and pack a sweater, it's cold down in there!!
