This epic adventure will take you to multiple caves found in Colorado Bend State Park - some of which are only accessible on rope. We will explore caves in the their natural state. We will descend below the surface world into deep cracks, through tight passages, and into large chambers.
Be prepared for cross country hiking. Some caves will require squeezing through small openings - 18 inches high by 24 inches wide. Tour is strenuous and visitors should prepare for up to 6 hours to enjoy this event.
Previous caving and/or vertical experience recommended, but not required. We will teach you everything you need to know. Ample time will be spent on operation and safety of all gear, with practice rappels outside of a cave environment.
The park will provide the following equipment:
- vertical gear - harness, ropes, rappel device, etc.
Visitor should bring the following equipment:
- 3 sources of light - headlamp, flashlight, etc.
- knee pads

Bring a lunch, which will be eaten in the field. In addition, be prepared to carry the water you will need for the day.
