Christmas in Ash Cave Being offered from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m., your evening will begin with a unguided lantern walk along the paved trail to Ash Cave. Once you arrive at the cave, the children can visit with Santa and tell him their fondest wishes. Guests will be able to sit around a cozy campfire, enjoy some refreshments (hot chocolate and cookies) and listen to a performance by carolers. Feel free to join in the singing.

As candlelight flickers off the roof of Ash Cave, guests will also be able to help decorate the Christmas tree for wildlife. Those with an adventurous spirit can take a walk deeper into the gorge to see the cascading waterfall.

All park visitors must remain on the paved paths. The paved trail to the edge of the cave is stroller accessible and wheelchair accessible. Make sure to wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.

Again, hours for the Christmas in Ash Cave event are 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 14. Admission is free. Parking is free.
