Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear for my tour?
Wear comfortable clothing: jeans, shorts, or even a comfortable skirt will do. Make sure your shoes have good traction – sneakers or hiking boots are ideal. Bring a light jacket – even in the heat of a Colorado summer the temperature in these Colorado caves is a pleasant 54 degrees.
Are baby backpacks or strollers allowed?
Front baby carriers are permitted. Our caves have narrow, short passageways with over 200 stairs, so strollers and baby backpacks are not allowed.
Are leashed pets allowed?
Pets are not allowed in Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.
Is the cave wheelchair-accessible?
The cave itself is not wheelchair-accessible because of its narrow passageways and stairs. We can give you a complimentary visit into the Canopy Hall, the first room in the Cave, which highlights beautiful formations.
