Description 

South Cave Rock constitutes the righthand of two large formations that make up Cave Corridor [a 30+ foot wide corridor of rock between this rock and North Cave Rock on the left]. Cave Corridor lies directly south of the large Ryan Mountain trailhead parking area. This formation is farther of the two from the parking area, about 120 yards away.

Rock tends to be a bit loose and/or grainy. While the grains are mostly small in size, they don't seem to clean up very quickly.

Getting There 

Hike the Ryan Mountain Trail a short distance, then head right, to the rocks or walk to the cave and around right to the corridor.
