Each person must bring two pairs of shoes- boots or shoes with good traction, and any type of footwear to change into so that the WNS fungus is not carried out on your shoes.

The park will provide bags and instructions on cleaning the shoes so that we do not spread WNS to other areas. The hike is not handicap accessible and not recommended for people with mobility issues.

Every person on a cave hike must sign a release of liability waiver, and bring a working flashlight.
