Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Sights

Boyden Cavern

Fodor's Review

The Kings River has carved out hundreds of caverns, including Boyden, which brims with stalagmite, stalactite, drapery, flowstone, and other formations. In summer, the Bat Grotto shelters a slew of bats. If you can't make it to Crystal Cave in Sequoia, Boyden is a reasonable substitute. Reservations aren't taken for regular tours, which take about 45 minutes and start with a steep walk uphill.
