This trail was easy to find, well marked and very well maintained. The forest service has informative signs to explain why and how the caves got there. This is a fee area ($5.00) and a flashlight is necessary to navigate the cave. We had children...More

My friends and I followed “Devil’s creek” all the way down and we found the nature slide! Definitely a hike for anyone of any size! Don’t be discouraged, uphill isn’t so bad and our absolute worth it.

There is a dusty, 1 mile trail up to the waterfall. You can walk over the rocks and go behind or in the chilly waterfall. Then you get to walk through the caves (bring a flashlight). After the caves you have the option to hike...More

It is a nice well used trail and walk through a cave. Bring a good flashlight. Wear good walking shoes as the cave has a rocky bottom with possibilities of ankle twisting.

This is a fairly easy trail to a very nice walk thru the cave itself. Only about a mile and a half round trip. A lot of uphill hiking. Not too steep, but if you are old like me, be prepared to stop and rest...More

We did this as a short hike, having done the High Skyline at Mounbt Rainier the day before, so a bi more relaxed. It was still a nice walk, around 1.7 miles all in. The cave was obviously the star attraction. Really interesting rock formations,...More

A short drive up the highway, Boulder Cave is a local favorite spot. With a recently redone parking lot and bathrooms, the trail is a short and easy hike up to the cave. You definitely need something stronger and more than a phone for a...More
