The front half is very kid friendly. The back half I've taken kids as young as 10 who listen well and are not afraid of heights.

yea we took a couple of young'uns in there a while back and they had a good time. We did the little loop and came back through the water. It was a blast.

Thanks for the help all. One of my caving buddies wants to carry his daughter(10) somewhere besides T-Rock. Sounds like this will be the place. Thanks again.

If you need any help feel free to pipe up. Also, Bluff River and Hans Kennamer are two other very kid friendly caves.

Short answer: yes, as long as it's not raining.

You have to have a REALLY low clearance car to not be able to make it. Tommy (the property manager) also recently redid the upper entrance so it's much smoother for now. The lower entrance will not give you trouble with mud except in the wettest of weather, in which you shouldn't be visiting the cave anyhow, seeing as how the entrance can sump...

That sounds good, I'd rather drive the econo box than my big truck or xterra. Unfortunately I had to delay my trip yet again. Driving 4 hours to cave really bites. DOWN WITH WNS!! At any rate thanks for the help all maybe we'll make it up in a weekend or two.
