On the surface the Oregon Caves National Monument may appear to be much like other outdoor areas in Southern Oregon, but it’s not just the delightful trails meandering throughout beautiful forests that are amazing about this area. Below the earth’s surface lies a vast system of caverns and caves, and the park itself offers many family-focused opportunities.
These beautiful marble passages and chambers mystify visitors. Take a guided tour of the caves, and learn about this diverse geological area from experienced ranger-naturalists. Kids can participate in the Junior Ranger program in the summer months and learn to share the responsibilities of preserving and protecting the Monument.
Take a hike on one of the scenic trails, or if visiting in the winter, snowshoe through the beautiful Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest.
The Oregon Caves National Monument is open year-round for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and snowshoeing. Tours of the caves are operated on a seasonal basis from late April through early November. The Oregon Caves National Monument is the perfect place for young and old to get a chance to explore and discover underground caves, and hike through ancient forests.
