Chert Valley Cave

Chert Valley is located near the bottom of this sink at the base of a small cliff. The stream from the canyon flows into the cave system during the spring and brings sticks, logs and soil into the cave clogging its passages and at times opening up new ones.








While the cave only extended down into the mountain a good 50' or so until it was plugged with silt, next years run off could push through the plug and turn this cave into one of Utah's most extensive cave systems.

Chert Valley cave looks familiar. Lots of debries and muck in there. Lots of potential if it ever flushes out!
