LATITUDE: N 4319.960
LONGITUDE: W 12040.275
From the parking area it is about 1/4 mile to
Crack In The Ground. Just as the name implies
there is Crack In The Ground. A trail takes
you inside the Crack In The Ground
Not suitable for persons with claustrophobia
It is moderately difficult with only a couple places
you need to use caution. During winter months
after snowing, it will take longer to melt because
the trail is always in the shade.
