Oregon Caves National Monument is small in size, 480 acres,
but rich in diversity. Above
ground, the monument encompasses a remnant old-growth coniferous forest. It harbors a fantastic array of plants, and a Douglas-fir tree with the widest known girth in Oregon. Three hiking trails access this forest. Below ground is an active marble cave created by natural forces over hundreds of thousands of years in one of the world's most diverse geologic realms. A concessioner provides CAVE TOURS for a fee.
