There are five caves to explore, a viewpoint overlooking a waterfall, and a viewing platform providing a great view of the Resurgence Cave entrance (where the river flows out of the cave and back to the surface) - not to be missed! Remember to take two sources of light, watch your footing, and mind your head on some of the low cave ceilings.

  • Driving Directions:From Gold River, head west towards Tahsis. Turn onto the Head Bay Forest Servive Road(gravel)for approximately 14.5 kms. Turn right on to Branch H-27, and park on the right just before the bridge. The trailhead is on the other side of the bridge. Roughly 25 minutes from Gold River.
