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.

Dragonflies and damselflies are ancient creatures that have lived on Earth far longer than mammals. They have sophisticated eyes, over twenty to thirty thousand per head. Dragonflies are fast fliers; the blue-eyed darner can fly 48 feet per second while chasing prey. Most can fly far, even able to survive crossing a sea or ocean, if they have to.
