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.

Did You Know?
The stream that comes out of the entrance of the cave is a tributary to a watershed that empties into the Pacific Ocean. There are no human-made obstructions that would prevent salmon migration, which makes this the only cave in the National Park Service with an unobstructed link to the ocean.
