Overview

Features: Cave

Description

Located near the southern end of the Sierra Vista Trail, Anthony Gap Cave Trail is a short connector to a cave system of the same name.

The trail turns off of Sierra Vista as the latter reaches its final high point, just south of the state line. Look for a singletrack headed to the east, considerably rockier than the one it came from. The path can be indistinct at times as it makes a quick climb to the top of the mountain. Generally, the correct path is the one moving up higher. Cacti grow in close at several points, and the small rocks underfoot can be loose, so step carefully.

The cave can be found just below the top of the mountain. In contrast to the other, smaller caves found around the Franklin and Organ Mountains, Anthony Gap Cave is vertical. The entrance is easy to spot, due in part to graffiti disfiguring the area around the cave mouth.
