From Las Vegas, drive north on Interstate-15 for 21 miles to Highway 93 (Exit 64) (Site 0674). Exit the interstate, turn left onto Highway 93, and drive north for 72 miles to Alamo (Site 0675). Alamo is the last place for hot food, and the little motel in the middle of town is acceptable if you are tired and don't want to sleep out. Continue north on Highway 93 for another 9 miles to Ash Spring (Site 0444), which is the last gasoline before the cave.

From Ash Spring, drive north on Highway 93 for 2 miles to Highway 318 (Site 0677). Turn left onto Highway 318 and drive west for about 0.7 miles to the Y-intersection with Highway 375 (Site 0676). Stay to the right on the curve and follow Highway 318 north towards Hiko.

Pass Hiko and continue north for about 65 miles to Sunnyside and the Kirtch Wildlife Management Area. Continue north for a couple of miles to the unmarked Whipple Cave turnoff (Site 0930). The turnoff to the cave is marked by a barbed-wire gate about a half-mile north of Mile Marker 23. The gate is marked #48. Go through the gate and drive northeast, staying to the right at all forks. Eventually the road curves gradually to the right (southeast) and runs up into a canyon. In the canyon, a short, high-clearance side road to the left runs back northwest to a saddle and campsite near the cave entrance (Site 1176). Without a high-clearance vehicle, park at the turnoff and walk the last 2-3 minutes to the end of the road.

This is a rapel-in cave, but it is absolutely beautiful with some of the largest columns in north America.
