Wild Cave Tour

Join us for two exciting hours of guided off-trail cave exploration. You’ll walk, crawl and climb your way through a mile long subterranean creek bed, lit only by the light of your helmet! There you will see crystals, geodes, fossils, flowstone, and large rimstone formations as you venture into a part of Crystal Cave that very few have ever seen. You will encounter running water, loose stones, and lots of mud, so be sure to dress for the occasion. Lace up shoes, long pants, and long sleeve shirts are strongly suggested. Headlamps, helmets, and knee pads are required for the tour, and will be provided for those who don’t bring their own.
