A cave with some of the nicest formations you will encounter! The 1/2 mile hike down to the cave entrance (and back up) is on a nice trail that passes by a beautiful water fall on the creek that runs into and through the cave....More
I’ve been in lots of caves and I would be the last person to discourage anyone from spending money to support a National Park. But even if you have never visited a cave before, there are several reasons why I’m telling you to just skip...More

Crystal Cave is an interesting attraction in Sequoia National Park; it is an example of - the journey is better than the destination. The half mile hike to the cave entrance is worth by itself. I wish the National Park allows people to go on...More
The guided tour was very informative and the cave itself is really pretty and interesting. Our tour guide was informative and funny. It's a 300+ foot walk (on paved path) down to cave and then, oh yes, gotta walk back up after. My husband and...More
We visited the cave this past 8/2018 and it was a pretty short tour in my eyes. I've been to other caves/caverns in other locations and left there extremely impressed. What was more impressive to me was the hike down to the cave. The waterfalls...More

Do it! So unique in a national park. Staff was friendly, informative, and helpful. We had Evan and it made all the difference with his humor. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there. We drove from John Muir Lodge and it...More

The caves were beautiful, kind of a mini-Carlsbad Caverns if you have been there. So many amazing formations to see. Lovely (and very steep) walk down along waterfalls. Fun and informative guides tell you all about the caves, even a few minutes of "lights out"...More

The lighting inside the cave is not that great; so walking out by yourself may not be the best option; instead wait it out with the group. Or, just do not go on the cave tour, just go do the hike which is very nice with several waterfalls. But you will still need to buy the tour ticket to go on the hike.
