The Natural Entrance Trail is one mile long and follows the traditional explorers’ route. It drops 750 feet via a series of switchbacks and is not recommended for people with health conditions or knee or back problems. The path is well lit and paved; but can be slippery when wet. Sturdy shoes with rubber soles are recommended. As you begin the path to the Natural Entrance you will be stopped by a ranger to get a briefing on the do’s and don’ts of the tour. The path can be strenuous.
The Big Room Trail is 1.5 miles long, paved and relatively flat. The paving can be slippery when wet.
Equipment: Good walking shoes with rubber non-slip soles.
