Join Texas Cave Conservancy and the City of Cedar Park Parks and Recreation Department for Cave Day on Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. This free bi-annual event offers the opportunity to visit cave preserves and learn about the history of the area, for free! 

 Visitors will be able to hike several cave preserves, enter Avery Ranch Cave, enter Dies Ranch Treasure Cave and visit a 100-year-old log cabin. Here are your options:
  • Discovery Well Cave Preserve - Self-guided hike with over 3 miles of trails. There is no cave access on this site. 15000 Anderson Mill Road. 
  • Twin Creeks Historical Area - This new park has a historical log cabin and an Indian Shelter Cave available for visitation. Allow fifteen minutes to drive to the site. 2900 King Monument Lane. 
  • Avery Ranch Cave - Cavers will assist you while you are in the cave. This educational show cave has lights and a deck. Lights are not necessary but they may be fun to have along. Allow for twenty minutes to drive to the cave. Avery Ranch Cave parking is located at the Avery Ranch tennis court at 9400 Morgan Creek Drive, Round Rock. 
  • Dies Ranch Treasure Cave - This is more of a caving experience. Bring lights so you can explore this cave. Join Bill and Jeanette Larson will even help to look for the outlaw Sam Bass gold. To reach the Dies Ranch Treasure Cave, turn off Anderson Mill onto Zeppelin Drive. Go past the Deer Creek Elementary to the intersection of Zeppelin and Rambler Valley Drive, Cedar Park. Park at the cave preserve entrance and walk to the cave.
All sites will have information and educational signs. On Saturday, you will be able to find maps at the Dies Ranch Treasure Cave, located at 2709 Gholson Drive, Cedar Park. To see the event flyer from 2011 (which includes maps to each location), click here.
