Layser Cave - A rare glimpse into the past - In 1982, during pre-work for a timber sale, Tim Layser discovered a hidden cave on Lone Tree Mountain. Now known as Layser Cave it has become one of the oldest links to the past in the Cascade Mountains. Artifacts that were unscathed by looters revealed an untouched home from nearly 3,500 years ago. To learn more a small exhibit is held at the Cispus Learning Center and approximately 3.3 miles away is the trail head entrance that offers an easy 1/4 mile round trip hike to the cave.
Angel Falls and Curtain Falls - Both Angel and Curtain Falls are located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Both falls are fed by the West Fork of Covel Creek. Angel Falls is approximately 175 ft. high and 25 ft. wide The flow of Angel Falls varies. Hike time to Angel Falls is about 60 minutes at a slow to medium pace from the Cispus Learning Center. Along the way you will pass by Curtain Falls that is approximately 75 ft. high and 30 feet wide. Curtain Falls is a unique walk behind falls that takes about 30 minutes to hike from Cispus Learning Center.
