Layser Cave Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This ancient Indian cave, used by long-ago Indian families for shelter and as a place to skin animal hides for clothing, will intrigue children. The age of the weapons found here make it one of the older archaeological sites in the state—perhaps 6000 years old."

This is a small cave about 800 feet off the roadway. Once you start up the Forest Service Road off the main roadway there will be NO signs telling you where to go. It is a narrow forest road going up to the cave. When you come to a wide spot at a corner that is the parking area. The trail is across the street going down through the tree's, there will be an interpretive sign at the bottom of the stairs. The cave itself is not as impressive obviously as Ape Cave, but the kids liked it. Unfortunately people have written their names and all sorts of other stuff on the cave walls and roof.
