The cave has about 2,100 feet of passageways, 5 entrances, and from one end to the other (with the largest, main entrance in the middle), it is about 1300 feet long. Access to the largest of the caves is blocked from October through April to protect hibernating bats.

Scout Cave Trail

 (3.6)

Scout Cave Trail image

As soon as you enter the cave, it is immediately obvious why it has its name - the Native Americans in the area could easily scout out the entire valley from its vantage point. This sandstone feature is unusual for its relatively large size, and the trail is generally easy with just a few short portions that are steep enough to get the heart pumping.
