Questions & answers

whats the cost?
This place was a free national park.
How long of a walk from the visitor center to the mouth of the cave? Thanks in advance!
Maybe ten to 15 minutes, not very long. The ranger took us on the tour. You cannot enter the cave. The walkway is paved with asphalt. There are rat snakes that live near the walkway.
