Wild Cave Tour

The newest of the Caverns tours takes visitors to the undeveloped sections of the middle level. Participants should be in good physical shape, wear sturdy boots, and come prepared to get dirty and have fun.

Wild Cave Tour 2013

Tour participants should expect to climb very steep slopes, crawl on hands and knees, pass under low ceilings, and travel through red clay. The tour ends at the Titans, a group of tall spectacular columns. Hard hats, kneepads, coveralls, gloves, and lights are provided. Participants must wear sturdy boots with ankle support and aggressive tread, bring street shoes for after the tour, and any medications needed. The Wild Cave Tour is limited to a minimum of 3 but no more than 12 people per tour. Participants must be at least 10 years old. A responsible adult must accompany children 10 to 12 years old. The Wild Cave Tour is available by reservation only.
