The hike in, as others have said, is strenuous but fairly short. Definitely a hike to avoid if you're not at least in decent shape although if you're not I expect the rangers would wait for you. Everyone in our group was in good shape so we pretty much all made it to the cave entrance within 30 minutes or so. Once inside the cave you see a lot of damage from prior bat guano mining. You basically do a big loop around the cave. Some of the rooms are quite striking (Christmas tree, Great Wall of China) and others are less so. The cave trip says it finishes at 230 although we were back to the cars by 130 (it is about 45 minutes from the main cave, however while you start the day there, the rangers will take your gloves and helmets so you don't have to drive all the way back). Overall, it was an average cave with a strenuous approach, hence the 3 star rating.
