This trail begins 0.3 miles from Cabin Trail, which is clearly marked on 113A in Wonalancet. There is no parking area, however you can easily park on the side of the road. We classified this trail as moderate, but there are places of steep ascent and descent. The trail leads to the summit of Mt. Mexico (unmarked, no views), which is somewhat level, then descends, at some points steeply, to the Big Rock Cave, which was our destination. The trail does continue on to Whitin Brook Trail & Old Paugus Trail. **Note: it had rained the night before and the mosquitos were unbelievable!
