- 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.

Dusty Art Gallery
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.
