Similar to the path above Teda’s Rise on the east side of Lake Solitaire, the trail previously climbed up and over the Hidden Cliffs and the Windy Cave. The boardwalk was installed below the Hidden Cliffs to avoid this climb and to provide direct access to the cave. This also removed the trail from an area which has large cavities between the rocks and where bears have been known to hibernate.
Other caves of importance on the reserve include Fisher Cave on the east side of Lake Solitaire and Triangular Cave high up the cliff on the north end of High Lake. Fisher Cave in reality is also a large rock overhang which substantially closes in during the winter as an ice wall covers its open side.
An underwater cave is reported to exist beneath the cliffs at the south end of Buck Lake. In recent times attempts to locate this cavern have been unsuccessful.
