Lake Lenore Cave Shelters

The Lake Lenore Caves were formed when melt water from the Ice Age floods plucked basalt from the walls of the coulees. The caves were used as temporary shelters and storage areas by Native Americans who were hunting & gathering food in the coulee. A well signed gravel road leads off SR 17 to the trailhead at the north end of Lake Lenore. The trail is a surfaced path with one section of stairs at the steepest part. Turn right after the stairs and keep going until you see the caves. Distance: mile
