Lehman Caves Visitor Center is just inside Great Basin National Park. About 15 minutes from Baker Nevada. It is very well signed.
The cave is a ranger led tour that is the most open one I have ever been on. They let you bring a camera and your own flashlight and you can take your time and even wander around a little without the group. I was very impressed how lax they were and it was a lot of fun. There are two tours. A 60 minute and a 90 minute. I did the longer one. There is some head ducking and stairs but otherwise it was very easy and very beautiful. Make sure you call well before your trip to guarantee yourself a spot on the tour. We went at the very end of October and our tour was still full so calling ahead is essential. The cave has a natural entrance that you cant go in.
They blasted an entrance that the tours use that is right out the back door of the visitor center.
This cave has a ton of very cool features but the park is best known for its large shields and lots of cave popcorn! Here are a few amateur pics I took of what you get to see here.
I thought this cave was a lot of fun. The rangers were very friendly and laid back. You got to see a whole lot of cave. They let you take your own photos. There are thousands of formations. This is a must do for anyone visiting Great Basin National Park or the Ely Nevada area.
