Description

This short trail off Hemlock Bridge Trail takes you to a cave that hasn't been on the guest list since the 1950s, and it shows! The cave is in great shape, and the scenery here is spectacular. Just the trail to the cave is beautiful, skirting right against the cliffline, which dominates the ridge in this area. Look up as you go, and you can see several smaller recess caves in the making!

Once you get to the cave itself, new wooden stairs make descending into the cave a breeze and protects the beauty of this feature for generations to come. This is an out-and-back trail that you'll not want to miss!
