I had orginally intended to climb it from the west, but that area was posted private. So, we started from Mueller. Luckily, there wasn't too many bikers out. It may be a little too muddy towards Rudy's Flat still, so it kept their numbers down. After about 1 mile, I took us off trail, and climbed up the ridge. We went up the ridge that is west of the ridge where they clear cut and laid the pipeline that comes over the mountain from Henefer. It's about 1/2 mile from there up. Nice and steep the last 200 ft or so. I'd been eying this one for a while since I drive by it each day to work. I'll be doing a page for it. My route was just under 4 miles round trip, taking about 3 hrs. Is there a cave on it somewhere? the west face is pretty rugged. Is it there? I can't seem to find much history or anything on it. What do you know about it?
I like hiking in this area during winter to avoid bikers. This is a nice peak that can be climbed all year. It is seen by many people and yet few of us know the origin of the name. I always thought that Cave Peak was named after Cave Hollow on the northwest side of the mountain. Are there any caves there? I don’t know but I would think that any mountain named “Cave” would have a cave on it or nearby. The west side is rugged but there is private property and large houses and roads located on the steep mountain side. That is most likely where any caves would be but they could be anywhere.
