I have been unable to locate any caves that are open to the public near Kalispell.  There are a couple of caves in Glacier, but they are not open to the public.  They're in remote places and  one has an endangered bat living in it, which is why they keep it closed.

I know one needs a reservation to hike, I am asking about hiking upstream from Supai to upper Havasu and Cataract canyon? The main trail in comes from Haulipai Hilltop, meeting Havasu Canyon just near Supai the Indian Village.

Supai village, located within Havasu Canyon, a large tributary on the south side of the Colorado River, is not accessible by road. The Havasupai Tribe administers the land, which lies outside the boundary and jurisdiction of Grand Canyon National Park.

The trail to Supai begins at Hualapai Hilltop, 191 miles/308 km from Grand Canyon Village or 66 miles/106 km from Peach Springs, Arizona. Peach Springs has the nearest services – gas, food, and water. No services are available at Hualapai Hilltop.

More information Supai and Havasu Canyon is available on nps.gov.
