Easy walk. Children can do the walk. A couple areas are not where you can take a difficult climb up stairs to the caves. Guessing it is about a mile or maybe a little longer.

Yes, you can do a self guided tour. Just stop at the visitors center and you can get a pamphlet with maps and other info. I think the website said the entrance fee is going up to $25 dollars starting June 1st.
