Features Cave

Family Friendly The trail is short and easy to navigate, and the whole family will enjoy admiring the cave at the midpoint.

Description

This is an easy trail with two small climbs if done counter-clockwise. There will be a small amount of scrambling at the midpoint, in front of the cave, but from there the trail returns to gentle slopes. Be sure to take your time exploring the cave, it's a real treat, especially for youngsters.
