Trail Overview

A short distance after the Mini Grand Canyon you have a chance to hike to the Bat Cave. This will probably take an hour and involve a small bit of rock scrambling. Drive to the end of the road "Ridgeline Bat Cave" (included in the Minor Trails file) then hike down the small wash to a big wash. Hike down the big wash until you see the cave.Be aware that bat guano may contain spores of histoplasmosis, an infectious disease caught by inhaling the spores of the histoplasmosis capsulation fungus. Look that up if you are concerned.
