Some links to Trout Lake caves. 


  This area has hundreds of lava caves. There are large caves with 60 foot high ceilings (Cheese Cave) to belly crawling caves (Hairy Fungus Cave). Too many of them to name. There are maze like caves such as Deadhorse Cave, Pickings Cave and more. There are Ice caves (Gular Ice Cave). Caves with unique formations, lava trenches (Wildcat Cave), Natural Bridges and more. Then there are big long caves with lots of breakdown to give you a good work out like Big Cave and Techno-9 Cave. Then there are caves with cool minerals in them like Happy Cave, Slime Cave and Metrical Cave.


Email Kim with corrections and updates. Will be adding many more cave descriptions over the next few months. Also will add cave number list. 

                Trout Lake and Falls Creek Cave descriptions.


 800 Foot Cave: map by Nieland

 812 Cave: Named after William Halliday's NSS number. It is a paralleling tube above Stairwell Cave, as it makes a wide berth from the main collapsed trench above the system. About 300 feet of passage and three entrances.  Ceiling height is high enough for some walking sections, but there is heavy breakdown throughout much of the cave.                

 A-Cave: Less than 200 feet of passage, this is a cave located in The Fallen Arches System. It is fairly short, and is mostly breakdown, but may connect somewhat to the Harvest and Ginger system of caves just north of it.

Anaconda Cave: This is a cave in The Tailbone System and is filled with multiple lava scrolls. After a tight entry, it opens to stooping passage and several rooms. Several leads still exist in it. About 250 ft long and no breakdown.

 A-mazing Cave: 615 feet of cave passage in the Smokey Creek area.  Ref. 8400, 5901, 8301

 Apple Cave: This short cave is noted for it's large chamber and short side passage. About 200 feet of passage, and is near Ice Rink Cave. # 633-24. Ref. 0267,01367, Nieland map 4212.

 Arachnophobia Cave: This 250 foot section of passage is near Skamaniac Adjunct Cave at the end of a long series of collapses associated with the main system. There is some walking passage, and the entrance drop into a mostly breakdown area. Also associated with several nearby sink caves (Icebreaker Cave, Squeezer Cave). #633-209 

 Armistice Cave:   Mostly a breakdown cave located near Techno-9 Cave. Most likely a spill over cave as it lies just off the main trench. [Petrie map]

 Ash Hole Cave: This cave has its entrance on one track of logging spur. The cave is short and filled with sand, but is nearby several associated sinks. The entrance was first entered after enlargement using a car jack to enlarge a small opening. Has 60 feet of passage, cave # 633-11.

 Asher's Cave:  Ashers Cave was named after an elderly local resident interviewed by Charlie Larson in a White Salmon barber shop during the 1972 NSS Convention. In 1974, beyond a long breakdown section, the cave was floored with slimy, gooey mud, and small clastic gours were noted. One room, named "Slug Room" exhibited lava dribbles that had fallen on top of breakdown blocks.

 Big Cave (Nielsen's Big Cave): 2700-foot lava tube. Extensive breakdown throughout the entire cave. It is the next large cave downslope from Dynamited Cave, and has ceilings as tall as 50 ft. The only original floor in the cave exists near its end. Discovered by a logging company in the late 50s, it is one of several large sections of the master tube that flowed down slope from a lava vent at lake Com Comly roughly 8000 years ago. Much of the original 6 mile long tube has collapsed, but what remains is very impressive, as Big Cave surely attests.

Cute Little Cave: Discovered and then lost for many years, this cave was originally just a short chamber before it was rediscovered and pushed another hundred feet through two bath tub rooms. Dennis Gladsby and Claude Koch discovered it around 2003.

 Datus Perrys Cave,  part of the Falls Creek Lava Tube System, was reported to Oregon Grotto in early 1968 by Datus Perry, a long-time resident and inveterate cave digger of Carson Washington. Best known for its lava stalactites and stalagmites, parts of the cave were photographed by Charlie and Jo Larson on May 19, 1968. Two photos depicting a two-foot lava stalagmite "before and after being broken," included in the 1980 Oregon Grotto Slide Show, were actually photos of the stalagmite as found (broken) and of it reassembled. In 1975, Oregon Grotto members surveyed 800 feet of the cave before the survey was abandoned because the cave was too cold for "shirt sleeves." Cave is more likely around 1850 feet in length, as several leads have pushed it significantly over the years.  Speleograph trip report by Libby Nieland Vol. 11 page 129. And Underground Express by bill Holmes 18 (3): 27. --several 1968 trips planned (Speleograph 4(7):1)

 Datus Perry's Dug Cave: This guy was digging through breakdown in a big sink in the northmost Falls Creek Cave area. Two digs attempted to drop into the main passage, but both were never finished. The right side dig travels about 120 feet through a mine-like dig with timbers holding up the ceiling and a "Falls Creek Lava Tube" post near the end.

 Datus Perry New Cave:  A 2nd map done was done with a new name to differentiate it from all the other Datus Perry caves. It is over 2000 ft long and on a lava field of its own. The tube itself is on a very steep incline, which seems unusual for such a large lava tube to form. It is now known as Downdraft Cave

 David's Den Cave: Speleograph Jan. 1986 Page 3.About 1100 feet. South of Trout Lake.

 David's Den Annex:

 Dead Bear Cave: Multiple entrances populate this cave located near Thanks Cave. It is a low ceiling, mostly stooping cave, but fairly long at 3480 ft.:  Ref.  Perkins area map <<#6017>>[Petrie precise location map ] [Nieland[ map ]

 Deadhorse Cave: 14,441  feet of passage. Dead Horse Cave is no ordinary lava tube cave. It is the most complex, mapped, lava tube cave in the U.S.--so complex that the generic term “lava tube” seems inappropriate. A very popular cave, broadly consisting of the River Passage, Lower Cave, and Masochists Maze, the cave has three known entrances: the lower entrance (which floods occasionally), the upper entrance (also known as the Rat Hole), and a dug entrance near the northeast corner of Masochists Maze (repeatedly dug open and later backfilled, present condition unknown).
    Well known to locals for decades, as with many other caves in the Trout Lake area, cavers were led to the lower entrance of Dead Horse Cave on Nov.5, 1965, by Lyle Ryan, a Trout Lake resident and employee of SDS Lumber Co. The upper entrance was accidentally found by Don and Maylin Nelson who visited the cave with an Oregon Grotto group on Oct.26, 1969. The opening was confirmed as an entrance by Bob Baker, the first person to enter the cave via this opening.
    This cave lies in the path of ground water moving downslope obliquely toward Dead Horse Creek, which it parallels to the north. Water, manifested by pools, broken streams, subterranean fracture springs (and one boiling spring) streams through parts of the cave; then sinks back into the open rock or sediments, and eventually finds its way to the bed of Dead Horse Creek about 400 feet below the cave's lower entrance.
    It was four years after learning of the cave's existence before cavers--expecting to map a deserving but small cave--got around to Dead Horse. An Oregon Grotto team began mapping Oct.19, 1969, and was repeatedly amazed by what lay beyond the "small" cave. It just kept on going and going. The lower maze area was not mapped until Oct. 10, 1971. Last major mapping, Mar. 9-10, 1991, logged about 4,500 feet of passage in Masochist Maze

Ref. 1969, 3397, 3614, 6124. it has been progressively explored and mapped over a period of 22 years.

 Deer Cave: Trip Report Speleograph 369 page 6. About 1300 feet of passage. Initially only about 400 feet in length, it was extended through a tight crawl into a very decorated passage of delicate drippings.

 Dirty Cave: 300 feet of mostly crawly cave. Should be more info in history page. Trip Report Speleograph 369 page 6. Dug open in winter of 88-89? by Kim Luper and Dennis Glasby who got very dirty (2008 email).

 Dirt Hole Cave:

 Ditch Cave Located just north of Thanksgiving Cave along a logging spur, this unitary tube has some walking passage but is mostly breakdown. A 15 ft. bubble chamber is near the down slope terminus. .#6017 [Petrie precise location map ] #6507 #0360 [Cascade Caver 18(1-2):3-6]

 Dog Caves: See Craters Caves.

 Dot's Cave: 299 feet of stooping and walking passage. It is probably the northern most cave in association with the Smokey Creek System. It has two entrances; one near the road, the other in a large sink downslope from Pickards Sink Cave.:

 Double Eagle Cave: 633-200: A  vertical entrance into a nice medium sized cave. Mostly walking, with about 800 feet of passage. Interesting lava tube feature near the end, and a tight inaccessible tube continues on, but too small to get in. While the beginning is mostly breakdown, a section near the end is clear, and original tube still exists. Up-slope from Three Sinks (#7835. ) Down slope from Double Eagle #7835.

#Luper locations.--Luper 7-31-04 Russ Yoder found Double Eagle Cave #7835. #6573. [Luper CD mid-2005] [fall creek topos DVD3]

 Downdraft Cave: 633-206 (mis-labeled 633-208 on its bronze cap--which is Breakdown Mt.). A subset cave system located south of the larger Falls Creek System, it lies on a steep grade of flow but retains the large tube section. Cave is around 2200 feet long, and has multiple passages. Floor is rough, but walls retain their original texture. An annex cave in the same sink trends downslope for another 200 feet and ends at a tight lava droop. Ref. #6573.#Luper locations. [fall creek topos DVD3] #2028.

Down Under Cave: Near upper Pickings Cave, this cave has two entrances. One leads to a down under passage that continues through a tight squeeze. The other entrance by passes the squeeze and leads to a nice pond. About 300-400 feet of passage with several leads still un-pushed. Has a seasonal lake inside.

 Draftdodger Cave: Down slope from Downdraft Cave, this 450 foot long truncated extension of the system also lies in relation to Backdraft Cave which is an upper extension of it. Cave has walking passage and retains the same characteristics of Downdraft Cave to the north. 633-206 

 Dry Creek Cave: 633-27: A mostly crouch way, complex 2000 feet with some unusual features, pillars, windows, floor swirls. There are three entrances.

 Dry Creek Annex: 100 feet of rough crawl. Has been used as bear den.

Duckedunder Cave: 120 feet of tight crawl, and could possibly be pushed into more passage. Is part of three caves located in a sink system NW of Skamaniac Cave roughly 1/2 a mile.

 Dynamited Cave: 633-50: One of the longest caves in the Trout Lake area with many vertical drops and levels.  12,345 feet. Dynamited Cave was discovered in Spring, 1958, by Reno and Carl Ziegler, loggers with the Broughton Lumber Co. In Oct., 1958, early exploration began when Carl Nielsen, family members and friends entered the cave as far as the 15-ft drop. Sometime between Oct. 18 and Dec. 6, 1958, the most decisive event in this cave's history occurred when--after five local boys were unable to ascend a 40-ft pit they had dropped on a 3/8-inch rope--the entrance was dynamited, ending exploration of the cave until 1961. Dynamite was employed again in  late 1972 to destroy one of a series of  typically impotent gates, this one some distance inside the cave.
    This widely popular cave is the most mapped cave in the Trout Lake area. Only moderately sinuous in plan view, it is highly complex in profile, having widely varying multiple levels and abrupt drops. At least ten drops exist within the cave, 6 in the lower sections, and 4 in the attic passage. No other major cave has been found upslope from Dynamited Cave, but the upslope collapse suggests that it should continue beyond due to its size at the point of collapse seal.

See Caves of Washington for full write up. 

 Falls Creek Falls Cave: The lowest of the Falls Creek Cave system, it is about 800 feet long, and contains some original passage, as well as crawl, and a side passage. The sink it is located in an area that makes it hard to find, and has an upslope section of un-opened cave must exist, but hasn't been breached at this moment.: See Speleograph Jan. 1986 page 7. Found By Detus Perry.

 Firecracker Cave: 633-51. Cave extends west from trench mostly in dangerous unstable breakdown. Lost Creek ditch goes over cave. See also Slide cave. Is possibly an upper passage of Dynamited Cave, as it lies directly above it, but doesn't connect.

 Folgers Cave: 633-213: A segment of the Falls Creek Lava Tube System, named after a Folgers Coffee can found nearby, was first entered in March, 1968, by an Oregon Grotto party. A 1973 map by Rick Pope and Rick Lonergan shows about 2,100 ft (950 ft map length) of moderately sinuous underlain by terminal branches. Mostly breakdown, the cave exhibits some fascinating lava balls and sand castles.    Trip report Speleograph 359 page 8.

 Three Sinks Cave : At 2,800 feet map length, Three Sinks Cave is the second longest know segment of the Falls Creek Lava Tube System. Cavers learned of the cave from an Oct., 1967, letter from Clay Beal, then a U.S.F.S. Disrtict Ranger, to Bill Halliday which was forwarded to Oregon Grotto. First known cavers to visit the cave were Charlie and Jo Larson who found it to be a world class example of stream flow, sedimentation and subsequent erosion of pyroclastics in a lava tube.  Oregon Grotto held a Forest Service special use permit for several years; currently the cave enjoys special protection by the Forest Service.       Trip report Speleograph 359 page 8. Three Sinks Adjunct Cave: Upslope about 200 feet from Three Sinks Cave, this 200 foot long section of tube is fairly large in size, and contains a small section of sand castles.

Wonderland Cave: Originally about 465 feet long, this sinuous cave down flow from Metrecal Cave (and probably a truncated extension) was pushed to more than double its original length. Three entrances now exist, with the upper entrance slot crack opening up about 160 feet of passage. A middle "caterpillar entrance" extended the cave another 160 feet, and finally a new side passage from the main cave extended it another 255 feet. Total length is somewhere around 1024 feet. Cave has patches of walking passage with a nice lava columns in the main area.

  Wounded Elbow Cave: Dennis saw this hole on a trip to Prince Charming Cave back in the late 80's after Wounded knee was found. I explored uphill while Dennis explored down hill. The upper passage was all crawling as far as I can remember. I went maybe 1000 feet before it got to tight. It was finally mapped around 2007 or so and pushed beyond where I went. In 2008 a 2nd entrance was opened up. #633-35

Wounded Finger Cave: Located on the edge of the clear-cut near Mouse Track Cave and Beginners Luck Cave (Smokey Creek area) 

   Wounded Knee Cave: This cave found on a skiing trip in the late 1980's by Kim Luper. The cave has two entrances and is a very long crawly cave. So named by Dennis because I said something about my knees hurting from the long Crawl. About 1425 feet of passage.

 Y Cave: A very tight entrance between Ice Rink and Apple cave. Supposedly about 1000 feet of passage, and mostly crawl.  Speleograph Jan. 1986 page 7.
