Crystal Cave – Sequoia National Park

An hour and a half within the Land of Giants, rests the Crystal Cave. Open only in May through November, it’s a must-stop adventure in Sequoia National Park. Crystal cove is a tour-guided spectacle, so don’t expect to venture off on your own. From the top of the trail-head down to the mouth is approximately 1/2 a mile, one way. The trail down is a steep decline, eventually spouting it’s traveller’s around the base of a waterfall. The conservationists have strict rules within the cave, so be sure to listen to what they have to say. It’s not only important for your safety, but the safety of the cave as well.

Things to consider:

  • Cave is a constant and cool 50°F, bring a jacket!
  • Tour is approximately 50-60 min., plan accordingly.
  • Walk ways in the cavern are moist and some drenched, wear hiking shoes.
  • Unfortunately, infants aren’t recommended on the tour, the group will be asked to leave if it gets noisy.
  • No pets.
  • No Flash photography.
  • No self-sticks/tri-pods.
  • No backpacks.

  1. “Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused.. Any tips? Kudos!”

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what
    all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Hello there! This blog post could not be written any better!
    Going through this article reminds me of my
    previous roommate! He continually kept talking about
    this. I am going to forward this information to
    him. Pretty sure he’ll have a great read. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get
    that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.

    I must say you have done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog
    loads very quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
