Cave Tours Closed for Season
Cave Tours are closed for the winter. Tours will resume April 26, 2014. All trails on the monument remain open.
Due to recent road work on Hwy 46 and steady rain, the road is muddy in spots. Exercise extreme caution while driving to and from the Monument.
No Name Trail
No Name Trail Map, 18 KB pdf file
Distance: 1.3 mile (2.1 km)
Walk underneath the covered bridge on the No Name trail which follows Cave Creek, crosses the creek, and then does a steep climb back up to the other end of the Monument. You can relax on the many benches along the trail and listen to the sounds of the forest. The hike is short, but steep. The scenery is beautiful, and there are two short trails which lead to two waterfalls on No Name creek. This is a good route to take back to the parking lot after a cave tour.
