Description

Added by Forrest Tindall

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.

We brought our kids here only to see graffiti and garbage throughout the cave. From beer cans to a burned sofa. It was really cool to be in a cave but so sad what people have done to it. I‚Äôd like to come back with a dumpster and a power washer. ūüė•

Come on people. #leavenotrace

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.
