Explore Kuna Caves, Idaho

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.

Cool to see once or twice

It’s still open. Kind of tricky to find. On Kuna cave road coming from swan falls road look for a White House on the left side with a dirt road and go left. I believe that is wild cat road. If you went to the cow farm you went too far. You will see a sign on their dirt road that states private road not kuna cave.

Cool, trashy

Come on people. #leavenotrace

Super Fun Place to Visit

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

For An Afternoon Of Lava Tube

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.

Kuna Caves 9/14

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.
