Vanalden Cave

Saves: 792
Check-ins: 10
Contrary to the belief of non-Californians, the Golden State's most impressive features are geological. With such a mountainous region, caves are in abundance here. The Vanalden Cave may not be the most impressive but it is a bit of an oddity located near residential neighborhoods. The cave is surrounded by other hiking trails and a gorgeous view of the mountains and canyons. Even better, it's free, and you can bring your dog!

At the split in the trail (after 0.15 miles), go left. Go left again after the 2nd split then follow the trail to the right to find the cave.

This is on of the entrances, best bet is to pin the location on your map in case you lose service. Keeping left does the trick

Carvings even all the way up there. Modern day hieroglyphs? Cave paintings?

Beautiful day. exploring with my dog. During the beginning of the hike there is a large trail. But as you continue its gets very narrow and overgrown a bit. Over not a bad hike at all. Loved it.
