The path to Cave Springs is quite rocky and has some hills. We recommend using hiking poles and wearing good hiking shoes. Carry water and dress for changeable weather.
The hike includes some local lore, but there's a lot more than we can cover while hiking!
You can read more about the Witch of Cave Springs at this link, including reviewing a copy of "The Mystique of Cave Springs" by Margaret Reed: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1D1wreBwDD3PvD6YfqUGh1AkyJCPjhggf?usp=sharing
