Awesome photography and hangout spot. Close to good post adventure tacos!

To access the Kuna Caves, turn onto Kuna Cave Rd, then take a right on Black Cat Rd. Next turn left on an unmarked road - if you reach W. Dickman Rd you've gone too far. You will then need to open a cattle gate, designating public BLM land. Past the gate, follow the dirt "road" for a hundred feet or so until reaching the cave entrance.

The cave is entered by climbing 50 feet down a steel encaged ladder. The cave itself remains around 56 degrees year round, and is about a quarter mile long.

This Is A Rad Place To Go Explore, Make Sure To Bring A Sweatshirt And Pants If You Are Gonna Go All The Way Down Either Side Of The Cave. It Gets Really Dusty And Make Sure To Bring A Flashlight

Like this place a lot, always have gone to the left til the end. A little too claustrophobic for the right tube. Always picking up garbage outta here though sadly. I consider it like an underground ghetto art gallery because of all the spray paint too.

It was honestly really amazing. It is about a 50 minute drive away from Boise State. Bring clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, if you want to get far into the caves there is some crawling.

We did a small service project here where we picked up a fair amount of trash, put it in garbage bags, and hauled it out via rope. The cave goes back for several hundred yards, but with people walking in it upwind of you (the cave's natural ventilation at 7:30 pm was significant, with air traveling towards the shaft entrance) it gets quite dusty. If I return I will bring a dust mask. The cave was covered with paint and graffiti as far as the eye can see. It is difficult to imagine what the natural cave walls used to look like. If we return, we'll probably spend more time climbing and exploring, and try not to stir up so much dust.

Doesn't even look like it exists until you get about 50 feet from it

Really cool place to see, instructions were right on and it pulls up on google maps. The reason why this gets a 4 star is because inside the cave is really dirty and vandalized. Lots of graffiti and some garbage

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
