6 miles of hiking • 250' elevation gain •
My niece and her fiance were visiting from Florida and wanted to go visit a lava cave. It's a two mile walk in on logging road to the TH, then a short 1/2 mile hike to the entrance of Ole's Cave. We wore helmets and brought headlamps and walked through to the thired entrance- about .7 miles. It was a little easier than the upper section of the ape cave, without the tourists! We were then only ones there.
