It a short hike but going into the cave and e pelting it was fun. Not to hard to get up or to keep going on your hike.

Great! But could have missed the bat caves if you aren't with someone who knows where they are. Also found a swing on a tree off the beaten path.

So special I almost don't want the say. It felt like we shouldn't be there except for in ceremony. Very sacred place. Bless it and please pick up your trash and be respectful.

This was an awesome, quick, easy hike! The initial trail is really easy to follow, but then it splits into a few potential trails; I basically made up my route as I went. But, it's all super open at that point, so you won't get lost easily. The caves were awesome & easy to get to. Nice views & dog friendly. Not crowded at all.

I took my 15 year old son and we had a blast exploring the caves and climbing rocks. Good exercise for the teens to enjoy with their parents.
