From the water tanks directly above the twin tunnels east of town, follow the aqueduct until it disappears into the mountain. From there, climb the trail up to the cave. The entrance was covered with a blanket when we were there, remnants of the homeless person who used to inhabit the front room of the cave.

Cave of the Clouds is a small two-room cave above the town of Glenwood Springs. The front room contains countless stalagmites, including the largest in the state.

This cave has been heavily vandalized, with broken formations everywhere, but is still a sight to see. The back room contains several squeezeways which are fun to squirm in and out of. There has been some debate as to whether the cave is located on BLM, City of Glenwood Springs, or private land. The latest word is that it is on private land, held in a trust. Local law enforcement has deemed the trail to the cave a safety hazard. We dont condone trespassing, but it hasnt stopped the hundreds of visits over the last 100 years.
