Fulford Cave #1875
Adress: Basalt, Colorado
***A permit is required to enter the Fulford Cave. The cave is closed from October 15 - April 15 annually. Some caves, including Fulford Cave, have been reopened seasonally with several requirements [http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/whiteriver/?cid=STELPRDB5191756] including mandatory on-line registration & decontamination of gear and clothes.*** The Fulford Cave trail begins near the Fulford Cave Campground [http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/whiteriver/recreation/recarea/?recid=40701] and ends at the cave. This short trail runs through aspen and spruce/fir forest leading up to the entrance of Fulford Cave, with a number of switchbacks to accommodate the rise in elevation. Please do not cut the switchbacks. At the top portion of the trail, there are scenic views of Yeoman Park. This popular cave has a great variety of features to discover and explore. Cave exploration can be exciting, but visitors are reminded that caves can be dangerous and that special equipment is needed for a safe trip. There are also now new regulations requiring pre-planning before your trip. Review the new caving rules [http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/whiteriver/?cid=STELPRDB5191756] for this information.
