There is a hike with a 500 foot elevation gain out in the desert before getting to the cave. The trail has loose rocks and gravel, which many people weren't expecting for a cave tour. Bring shoes with good grip. Also note that this isn't part of the main cavern, so if you take a tour here you drive from the visitor's center. The interior of the cave is darker is color than the main cavern which makes things a bit harder to see, especially with lighting by headlamps.
