Emerging from an interior tunnel in Twin Cave

This day trip is strictly for healthy, agile people. It isn't a tour. You'll be crawling through very small spaces and doing subterranean things.

Day Trip

The main cave you'll be exploring is Twin Cave in Mountain Pine Ridge. You'll leave at 8:30 and be back around 5. It takes about 1hr 20min to get to the trail head, from which you hike in about 10 min. From the mouth of the cave, you'll descend 50ft to the first level. From there you get to worm your way through some very small tunnels (shoulder width) and into the main chamber (50' - 60' high). From there, it's another 120ft down to a subterranean stream named "The Steady Stream of Max" and then down stream to the "Birth Canal" which opens to the "Meditation Room". From here you start heading back to the exit by a different route than you came. It's about 3hrs total cave time. After the cave and getting covered head to toe in mud and sweat, it's off to Rio On Pools or Big Rock for swimming and jumping off cliffs (and getting clean).
