Most caves in the Monument can be explored anytime without a reservation. Fern Cave, however, is closed for resource protection reasons and is open to visitors by ranger-guided tour only. The entrance area is not open to the public at any time other than during a ranger-guided tour. The exceptional rock art and sensitive biotic environment in Fern Cave are among the reasons that only guided tours are allowed here.
