Hiking Cave Hole

Cave Hole is a trail that leads to one of many of the interesting remnants of the mining activity that took place in this area in the early part of this area's history. Hike to this spot, but be aware that caves can be dangerous, so admire from a distance!

When you're finished, loop it up with the Sky Country trail, Nike Horse trail, or simply come back the way you came.

WTA worked here in 2011!
