Trail is approximately 1300 feet in length, and climbs about 300 feet from the parking lot to the cave entrance. Considered to be a more difficult hiking opportunity, and features a combination of tread types which include gravel, boardwalk, wooden stairways, and natural tread. A gate has been installed inside the cave about 200 feet from the mouth to protect the cave resource and ensure the safety of visitors. Even the first 200 feet of the cave contains uneven footing and other hazards. Proceed with caution! The Thorne Bay District will also be conducting guided walks into the cave throughout the summer. Please contact the Thorne Bay District for more information on accessing this cave.
