Likely In-Season!
Overview
This is a short and sweet little hike if you have a break in your day, between hikes, or heading out of town. These caves are fun to explore and are located mid-way through this very short 0.5-mile hike.

Hike
You will start straight ahead for the trail, it will start to go downhill on the rocks, and as you come to a sign that says "illegal to deface rocks" (don't miss it) that is where you will make a right turn just past the sign. There are about 4-5 that you can pass through along the side of the mountain. Be careful as they are basically on a cliff. If you are faint at heart or have a heights fear, you may want to stand back and take photos. If not, dive on in, but understand it is a cave. Bats and other critters make them their home.

After some cave fun, make your way down to the creek below. Bring your water and snacks, and soak in the views, dip your toes in for a quick cool down. Oak Creek is in critical condition, so make sure to pack out your trash!!!
