Cave and Hike

It is a surprisingly large cave with three distinct chambers and a secret exit at the back for those who don't mind climbing a precariously balanced log.Courtesy of summitpost.org
You can take a quad/four-wheeler half way up, after that there is a 1/4 mile hike that can be fairly steep. The trail leads directly to the cave.Courtesy of geocaching.com

 If you know the GPS of the mouth of the cave, please share using the feedback option below.
