Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Learn about an historic rock shelter and cave while on this shorter trek. First, take an all-access path to the mouth of Russell Cave and an adjoining rock shelter, home to American natives for 10,000 years.

Then make a loop on a steep but paved path along the east slope of Montague Mountain. Explore rocky woods while learning interpretive information about the lifeways of the hunters and gatherers who roamed these hills. Note: The cave grounds are open 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Central Time. The monument gates are locked at 4:30 p.m."
