We drove to forbidden caverns after checking the website and was disappointed to find it was closed, us and the kids were looking forward to exploring the cave.

Beautiful. Took my parents and a little tricky with older folks but we went slowly and they lived it.

We attempted to visit the Forbidden Caverns as when we searched via internet it indicated they were open until 4pm. However after making the drive (scenic and pretty) we discovered they were closed. Call before you go to make sure they are open.

It's a little steep in places. But for the most part it is very enjoyable.
