Cave Walking Tour
Daily, year round. Black Chasm Cavern was designated a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service in 1976 after being recommended by local members of the National Speleological Society, and as such is considered a "nationally significant natural area." Visitors to the cave are enchanted by the beauty of a wide variety of formations including stalactites, stalagmites, flow-stones and the vast arrays of rare helictite crystals, for which Black Chasm Cavern is justly famous. The 50-minute Landmark Walk Tour follows a series of environmentally friendly platforms, approximately 165 stairs and several walkways, designed to give the best views of the cave without compromising the naturally pristine environment. This beautiful tour shows off some world class formations, including vast arrays of rare helictite formations. Currently, the cave tour culminates in a visit to the Landmark Room, the location of the greatest collections of sparkling helictite crystals. For safety reasons, we do not allow babies to be carried into the cave in backpacks. Front packs are okay, but be sure to protect the head in low areas. This cavern tour is suitable for the entire family and makes an excellent school, scout or church field trip. See the website for more information.
