This cave is located in Kings Canyon National Park at the bottom of the valley between General Grant and Cedar Grove. There are 45-minute tours that leave every hour on the hour. The tour begins with a very steep five-minute hike to the cavern entrance and from there visitors travel deep within, where the temperature is a constant 55oF. Groups follow a well-lighted and handrail equipped trail as guides point out many natural varieties of formations. Reservations are not required. No wheelchair access. Popular features include The Pancake Room, a stalactite group called the Upside Down City, the Bat Grotto where bats spend summer days sleeping, and a flowstone formation called Mother Nature's Wedding Cake. The Drapery Room contains large drapery stalactites, long soda straws and twisting crystalline helictites. Speleothems have developed to resemble familiar objects, as with the Taco Shell formations, the Baby Elephant & Mom stalagmites, and the Christmas Tree. There is also a subterranean stream and many other unique features.
