Herring Cave is a rather long stream cave which trends north and west for 2,000 feet. The mouth opens in a breakdown. For 400 feet the stream flows over a bare rock floor, but beyond it is contained in a deep channel with overhanging ledges on either side. Beyond the deep channel the stream is wide and shallow. Toward the end of the cave it meanders in a trench in the silt fill. Several large solution cavities are developed along joints normal to the controlling joints of the cave passage.
