Nice short hike from the parking area to some very scenic caves. If you like moss, this is the place for you. The path is easy to walk, but those with mobility/ stability issues should keep their eyes on the path. The caves themselves are...More

You can park for free right at the main entrance off the main road. If you drive to the trailhead you have to pay. Park right away. The walk is maybe 500m
