The mileage is NOT very accurate. It's .65 miles from the flag pole at the cave visitor center (or whatever it's actually called). If you go too far you WILL find a large pull out, but you will NOT be near the right place. From the bottom end of the pull out cut back across the road, go up the fairly obvious trail (maybe 20 ft down the road) and it's only about 2-3 minutes up the hill. Apr 15, 2013
