Oregon Cave NM or extra day in Redwoods area?

Jump to last reply

Following a conference in Corte Madera the end of June, DH and I will be spending the first 8 days of July in northern CA/Redwood area and at Lassen Volcano. We’ll drive to Ukiah the night after the conference. Currently our itinerary is:

Day 1 – Ukiah to Arcata via Humbolt/Avenue of the Giants

Day 2 – Redwood NP to Crescent City

Day 3 – Redwoods & coastal area

Day 4 – to Oregon Cave NM

Day 5 – back through Redwood NP to Eureka

Day 6 – Old Town Eureka, then drive to Redding

Day 7 – Lassen Volcano NP

Day 8 – Lassen AM, then to south in afternoon to Sacramento for the night

Day 9 – Early afternoon flight home from SFO

We enjoy short hikes (3 mi. or less) and poking around tidal pools on the coast. The trip to Oregon Cave NM was something of an afterthought and now I’m wondering if we should skip that (and the extra 3 ½ -4 hrs. driving) and add another night in Crescent City. I haven’t found much on this forum about Oregon Cave, although there are tons of reviews on TripAdvisor – mostly saying “nice”, “interesting”, etc. But at least one says “nice but just like other caves.” I’m afraid that one could be right. We went to Wind and Jewel last June, Mammoth a couple of years before. DH and I actually met while doing wild caves in college (many, many years ago) and gravitate to national park caves when nearby sort of for old time’s sake. But I’m not sure we’ve enjoyed them as much as we might an additional day in northern CA.

Can anyone who has been to Oregon Cave NM make a comment? Or are there any recommendations for “must see/do” in Redwood NP or the CA state parks in the area?
