  • Description 

    An obvious limestone cave very near the main entrance to the state park. The bottom of it is often flooded in spring and summer. It is usually dry in fall. Most routes can still be climbed when flooded.

    Getting There 

    From the entrance to the Park,take the first right turn on the road and park at the main parking lot on the right just after the turn. Walk down to the bike path and follow it right (west) to the bridge, a minute or so from the lot. Right before the bridge, veer left and follow the obvious, dry (usually) creekbed to the obvious limestone cave. This should take less than a few minutes.
