Along the trail, your guide will explain the geology of the area; how caves are formed; show you fossils to examine up close; look for bighorn sheep; maybe spot a bear or a cougar. Inside the cave, you’ll get to climb, crawl, slither and get muddy. Soon after entering the cave you’ll rappel 18 m on a rope (with safety line backup) then on to the Five Way Chamber, Laundry Chute, Grand Gallery and finally to the Grotto, a chamber full of stalactites and stalagmites with a crystal clear pool at the bottom of the cave. Return is via the Box.

We provide: coveralls, kneepads, gloves, helmet & headlamp, safety lanyard, and backpack. You will not get wet in the cave.

      No problem. I usually drive. We'll meet at the CTrain station and figure out carpooling. See you then.
