The Chicken 2 Cave is one of the many Memekay River caves, it’s a great cave for beginners and for those who do not like crawls (a crawl is where you are crawling on your belly). It’s right off the side of the road with a fairly easy trail, this trail does drop to the entrance quite steeply though.

There are many cave crickets and cave spiders on the ceiling and walls in this cave, so many that you can feel them dropping on you from above, you have to wonder just what they eat, maybe lost cavers.

The entrance to this cave is pretty awesome, it’s a big entrance that makes one think of a King Kong movie set, quite impressive. I have gone into this cave many times and always enjoy it like the first time. There are no real hazards here and the cave is awesome.

Please do not ask for directions, it’s more fun to search them out by yourself and I figure those who take the time to find them will respect them, at least I hope so.
