The ranger-led, 1.5 hour Introduction to Caving tour introduces visitors to low-impact caving skills, safety and etiquette. With a helmet and headlamp you are ready to experience Hansen Cave in its natural state. You will scramble over boulders and sometimes even crawl on the trail leading to Hansen Cave Lake as you travel the same route Martin Hansen used to conduct tours in the late 1800s.  

This tour requires bending, climbing and is considered strenuous. Be prepared to get your clothes dirty and have fun! The tour is limited to 5 people, age 14 and older, and requires advanced tickets. Under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
