the thing the reports do Not tell you is the road in is closed after Dec 1st.It is only a 3/4 mile walk in on paved road but still plan for it.The caves are amazing, the lower cave is sort of bland but it is a good warm up for the upper cave.I highly recommend gloves for the upper cave, the rocks get kind of sharp.If you choose to go when there is snow on the ground familiarize yourself with the return trail or you will get lost.Overall a terrific experience. Don't be afraid to explore off the beaten path, you will be rewarded with an amazing time.
