Tapeats Cave At least half of the total flow in lower Tapeats Creek comes from Tapeats Cave. In springtime the combined flow makes the creek a dangerous obstacle.
Trails Thunder River Trail.
Routes The usual access is upstream through the Tapeats Creek narrows from Thunder River and up Tapeats Creek through the Shinumo narrows. Crazy Jug Creek and Saddle Canyon are other off-trail routes.
2008 October - Descend Crazy Jug from Big Saddle and downstream for a visit up this side-canyon to the cave and back.
