  • A great little adventure but after exploring the cave in person, which is fun and mostly safe(bring gloves. Wear jeans. Have a good flashlight. Expect to get dusty)def think the legend behind the cave is a lot of roadside attraction bs from the 1920s to draw visitors
  • What is there to say? It's an awesome cave. The whole area is great for exploring the adjacent ruins. The front entrance is a bit sketchy, I prefer scaling the rocks to taking the bridge, but both paths are valid to enter the cave. The main entrance is definitely beginner friendly. It tightens up before opening into a large atrium with several offshoot rooms. Deeper in the cave is another smaller atrium, leading into an extremely tight squeeze one way, and some more advanced spelunking the other way. The road leading out there is a bit off road, but with care, it was a trivial task even in our civic.
