  • Beautiful hike! The incline is not too steep and the trail is very nicely paved all the way down the cave. There are some elevators at the bottom of the cave that will take you down and up the cave. I recommend walking down the cave then taking the elevator back up to the visiters center.
  • Very rarely do you get to hike into a cavern as big as this on a conventional trail. Highly recommend taking the natural entrance into the caverns.

  • Huge, and steep! For an easier adventure, plan to hike down the natural entrance and return by elevator at the end of your stay.
