Hooker's Cave near Abbott, TX -- directions to the entrance

Could someone point me to the entrance of Hooker's Cave located on the Old Carr Ranch near Abbott, TX? I already have seen the UER photos taken inside the cave, and have no intention of entering it. I am just curious as to where the entrance is. I am researching for the History of West Museum. We are trying to feature a theme entitled "The Wild Wild West" and Hooker's Cave is part of the legend of how West was founded. I know where the ranch is. I just need some direction. From the remnants of the now burned down home, what direction do I turn to? I'm a 65 year old retired teacher with a curiosity of this cave. No way will I even attempt to go inside. Too old for that & I fear snakes, at least the poisonous kind. Thank you for this wonderful resource!

I have never been - I live in WI. But, I found precise locations of the cave you seek with a simple Google search. I would suggest you start there.

I will have to go on record here as saying - Your account is almost a year old, and this was your first post. Being 65 and having no interest of entering the cave is suspect. That said, don't be stupid. I have no clue what is in that cave, but don't go alone. Let someone know you have gone, and when you will return. Be sure and let them know how many people are going with you. Use common sense. If it requires climbing gear, I personally wouldn't even risk it unless I was with an experienced spelunker.

My conscience is officially clear.

Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.
