PEEC > Caving trip to Buckman Cave is not for the faint of heart

For those who seek an adventure this fall, look no further than PEEC’s caving trip to explore Buckman Cave in Diablo Canyon. Buckman cave is an elusive spelunking spot outside of Santa Fe. Local outdoorsman and adventure guide Tony Hinojosa will lead the PEEC day trip on Sept. 22.
The group will meet at PEEC at 8 a.m. and will plan to return by 5 p.m. The length of time in the cave will be approximately 3-4 hours. Hinojosa will lead the group through the cave, stopping for lunch.
Buckman Cave is known for its maze of tunnels, which lead to a number of rooms deep underground. The atmosphere is cool and dark.
However, It’s not a trip for the weak at heart, or physically unfit. “This will be a very physically demanding cave outing with a lot of ups and downs,” Hinojosa said. “Participants should be in good physical fitness and prepared to climb.” He added that cavers need to be able to lift themselves up and over obstacles without aid from others. The hike to the cave will include difficult rock scrambling over a mostly off-trail venue.
