Visitors to Bear Cave can walk under, around, through and over (with care) gigantic sandstone boulders. Although there is no true cave, the huge rocks form a number of rock shelters and narrow passageways. Wander through these tremendous stone monoliths and imagine the incredible forces of wind and water that caused what you see today. (Light Pink Blazes)

Another wonderful short trail filled with rocky features and wooded areas. Can take your time to really enjoy the walk. Walking cane for those less agile or needing support is a good idea. This trail seemed more level than Rock House Cave Trail. Especially enjoyed "Eye of the Needle" rock feature. Our 9 year old grandson loved this hike too! Definitely a hike the entire family can take.

This short trail is a MUST during a visit to Petit Jean. Our kids never tire of the hike! the views are outstanding, and the focal points such as the "caves" and the "Eye of the Needle" are just really neat little aspects of this hike. In the winter months the view into Cedar canyon are second to none.
I would give this hike 5 Stars *****

This trail was a very easy, fairly short trail. My kids, ages 3-11, LOVED it. We had such a good time exploring and admiring the rock formations. It was such a fun hike.
