PAID TOUR: Hidden Cave & Grimes Point   

We will travel by bus to Fallon to visit the Churchill County Museum, then on to Hidden Cave and Grimes Point. We will walk the dirt trail (approx. 3/4 mile) up to Hidden Cave, a pre-historic archaeological site open only for guided tours. We will also walk the nearby 1/4 mile trail through the petroglyph site at Grimes Point. Not suitable for those with limited mobility, with steep trail, and stooping and ladders in the cave. We will head back to Fallon for lunch on your own at the Slanted Porch, and then have more time to visit the museum and exhibits before the drive back to Reno.

Full Day Tour:  Saturday, April 8 at 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED: On March 17-18, send an email to with Hidden Cave in the subject line. Include your name and phone number. You may also include the name and number of another OLLI member if you want to attend together.
