This is a wonderful park and although the 'hike up' to the top of the rock does not look difficult from below...it is a little bit of a work out. Taking time to appreciate the views makes the hike up quite manageable. The caves at the top are fun exploration for the kids and those adults looking for just a little more activity and excitement. A really good place to spend a few hours or more with friends and family.

difficult to get to. we weren't limber enough to go to where it looked to be the cave . you must wear good, gripping shoes, or you will slip on the smooth rocks

DO NOT enter the cave without a flashlight and really good shoes. ALSO, NOT at all a place for children. Dangerous!!!!!!

Go early in morning before heat gets going, not much shade. Worth the climb, stop take breaks, and when you get to the top you will be amazed at the beautiful scenery. So many other trails and nice rangers who give you suggestions. Clean bathrooms. Bring your water and wear good shoes.

The cave is an experience, that’s for sure. You twist, slither and climb your way along in the cold, wet dark, trying to spot those magic white arrows that point the way out. Meanwhile you’re thinking - they DO lead out, right? I didn’t miss a turn, did I?? My kids (7 and 10) were a good balance of terrified and excited; I admit I may have fallen heavier on the terrified side a couple of times trying to get them across the bigger gaps…. Claustrophobic? Hiking with little kids? Carrying a huge backpack? Skip the cave. Want that extra adrenaline kick, guaranteed to make the cave your kid’s “what I did on spring break” essay? Pack a flashlight & see you on the other side. A nice quick video sneak peak here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9LCapEbMt4
