Cave Exploring

Cave Header


Cloud 9 Ranch has some twenty plus wild caves within our borders. Ranch members are welcome to embrace their wild side and explore the Ranch Cave System.

Cave exploring is a beneficial way to reach your outdoor adventure goals.  This pleasurable experience allows participants the ability to embrace nature from the inside out.

Safe Caving Tips:

  • Caves are inherently treacherous and even at times dangerous environments.  Be aware that you are cave exploring at your own risk.
  • Have the proper equipment.  Take a reliable light source and extra batteries as a precaution.
  • Wear Appropriate clothing to protect against cuts and abrasions.
  • Wear Shoes that are secure to your feet. Sandals, Flip-Flops and other loose fitting shoes are not acceptable.
  • Some cave ceilings are low, caving helmets will help to protect you from bumping your head in these areas.
  • Never Cave Alone.
  • Always report to the Ranger Station before leaving out on a caving adventure.  Let the Ranger Staff know where you are going, and what time you expect to return.

Basic Caving Rules:

  • Bring only water into the cave
  • Wear appropriate clothing and shoes.
  • Carry Out what you Carry In
  • Always stay with your group.
  • Know your physical Limits.
  • No Alcohol

Take nothing but Pictures, Leave Nothing but carefully placed footprints and Kill Nothing but time.
