Pluto's Cave is a lava tube that was formed by an eruption of basaltic lava which originated from a vent about 8 miles to the northeast, between Deer Mountain and The Whaleback. Visitors can safely hike approx 1200 feet into the cave.
Caves have special, sensitive ecosystems. A variety of rare or endangered plants and animals are some of the more significant resources in caves. Caves are delicate and must be used wisely to avoid damage. Unlike the surface environment, which, in time, can heal its wounds, a cave, once damaged, remains that way forever.
Permits are not required to enter the cave. Be prepared with warm clothing, sturdy, non-skid shoes and extra flashlights.
Water and garbage service are not provided. Camping is not permitted at Pluto's cave. No food or drink inside the cave. Pets are not allowed inside the cave. No fires, torches or smoking in the cave. Pack out all trash and litter. Human waste is not permitted in the cave. Plan ahead!
