If it weren't for the difficult access, Red Cave would be immensely popular. It is still popular as is, but the access deters many. The hike can be done as a loop, or each fork explored individually from the bottom. The loop hike can be brutally hot in the summer, but exploring up the bottom of each fork and returning is very do-able year around, and family friendly.
