Boulder Cave Guided Field Trip

Location: Boulder Cave

Leader: Kelsey from the Forest Service

Kelsey will guide us on an approximately 45 minute tour of Boulder Cave. She will go over the geology, history, and current issues like bats and their white nose disease. After the tour for those who want, we will have a group lunch at the picnic tables. Bring a bag lunch.

Bring: walking or hiking shoes, a flash light, and federal parking permit of some kind. I will use my Golden Age pass. You can purchase one day parking permits there for $5.

How to get to Boulder Cave: take Forest Service Road 1704, which is on the west side of the Naches River just north of Cliffdell.  On Highway 410 just north of Cliffdell  turn west (there is a sign for Boulder Cave) which crosses the Naches River and then almost  immediately turn right (north) on to Forest Service Road 1704. Go 1.2 miles and you are there.
