Thanks to TRIPADVISOR we found this hidden gem!
Yeah so at first I was super excited about this trip, I mean a cave?!? I read about it, never been there, but decided on heading that way... = )
So honestly I had no idea where it was, I talked to the front desk at the HGI - they were no help and rude... = ( I knew the general area, but not the "exact" location... so i thought that we would drive and when we would get closer - there would be signs... about 2 hours later.. we were "lost"... again.. = ) so I called a few Tbers.. and none knew what the heck I was talking about... they found the website, but no logical directions only the phone number to the Park Service!! So I called them and BAM!! we were back on track.
When we parked, there were no clear signs saying where to go, so I just followed what seemed to a the trail - biggest trail I guess. It led to the enterence point of the cave... my stomach dropped.. it looked like the beginning of a horror movie... but i had to be strong!! Nothing but rocks on top of rocks... dark open spaces between one another gave me the creeps... lol especially we were in the middle of nowhere, no one even close to hear our screams... (NOT GOOD!!) but still i wanted down to the mouth, and then some rodent jumped from the between the rocks (scarying the crap out of me!!) and then ran off into the woods.
