Explore An Ancient Lava Tube | Derrick Cave

Hidden deep in between national forest and public land, you will find this hidden lava tube. 30 feet hight and 1/4 of a mile long, Derrick Cave was named after pioneer rancher, H.E. Derrick. The road to the cave is unpaved and very minimally maintained. There are no facilities available. Be prepared. High clearance two wheel drive can make it, but when it is wet, you will need high clearance 4 wheel drive to get here.
