Native American Cave PaintingsCome view Native American cave paintings near Camanche Reservoir and learn about their origins. We will take a hike to the Canal Cave site to view local fauna and discuss Native American plant uses. Attendees will learn about this region's rich history that was once inhabited by Native Americans and subsequent mining communities.

The slope of the last quarter-mile will be strenuous for inexperienced hikers.
