Getting to the Cave-Tour TrailheadHidden Cave is part of the Grimes Point Archaeological Area. From the Churchill County Museum on 1050 S. Maine St., drive north through the historical downtown district and turn right onto US Highway 50. Follow the highway for approximately twelve miles and turn left, where a sign points to the archaeological site. There are restrooms and picnic tables available at Grimes Point, from where you may explore petroglyph rocks. To continue to Hidden Cave, follow the well-graded dirt road (eastbound for 1.5 miles) and find the signed trailhead on your right.
