This interesting archaeological site was first discovered in the 1930s. Excavation revealed that the cave had been used by humans at least 9,000 years ago and perhaps as long as 11,000 years ago. Although no human remains were found, there was plenty of evidence of human existence such as moccasins, basket remnants, and arrow points. You'll have to hike up a steep path for about 1/2 mile (one way). A round trip should take you about 30 minutes. Refer to the map on Cibola National Forest website and download it onto your phone before you start out; you may not get a cell signal near the cave.
