Formed roughly 2,000 years ago, Ape Cave boasts the longest continuous lave tube in the U.S. It’s here where explorers will descend to the cave floor and scramble some 1.5 miles to its upper entrance. Depending on snow conditions, a roped belay may be necessary to enable entry and exit from the cave.

About Rare Earth Adventures
Rare Earth Adventures' outdoor guides lead nature lovers on hiking, mountaineering, rock-climbing, and snowshoeing treks through the scenic wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. But the foothills and forests surrounding the company's home base in Portland aren't where the adventures stop—the team also takes groups on international trips from the jungles of Thailand to the volcanoes of Mexico. If clients seek to improve their outdoor acumen, the team also offers educational programs that teach participants how to avoid unsafe situations while helping them earn their wilderness medicine and outdoor leader certifications.
