and Family Fun near Bisbe, Sierra Vista & Fort Huachuca
Recommended by: Tommy Franks
There is a real Cave you can go in - it is dark inside - so dark that you can’t see without a flashlight. Little kids might be scared to go in the cave. You will probably be the only people in the cave. It goes way to the back, there is some small places to go, but they come back to the big rooms, it is a good robbers fort.
You should bring a laser pointer and shine it in the broken parts of the big formations.
A large, unimproved cave ready for your exploration. No improvements or lights in the cave, in fact the climb into the cave is a jumble of rocks and is a workout! It is dark and dusty in the cave, wear good hiking shoes or tennies, and some old knock around jeans. If you want to picnic I would do it at the picnic site at the bottom before or after climbing about a mile up to the cave. There are stone steps laid for most of the trail, it is a shady, pretty but a steep climb.
Very neat cave, great exploring family adventure! (but not for little kids - some parts are steep). Try turning all the lights off - it is darker than you have ever experienced! Bring water, good flashlights, I recommend a lantern and Jacob say’s to bring a laser pointer.
