Without a guided tour, exploring the inside of a wild cave is nearly impossible. This Pigeon Mountain cave tour includes all of the gear you need to make it happen, plus a guide to lead you through the tunnels and crevices of an unpaved and unlit cave—exactly as nature made it.
What to Expect
This cave tour is the perfect trip for those looking for adventure and is our most popular tour for a reason! You will see some amazing formations, learn about the underground world, and truly experience some fun.  There are no lights, no handrails, and no paved paths inside a wild cave! Expect a great deal of physically challenging activity including crawling, stooping, walking in cold water, and climbing on rocks, so expect to get dirty and tired.

Once you arrive at the cave, you will complete any necessary paperwork and be given gear. After a short safety talk, we will walk to the cave entrance. Getting muddy is part of the experience, so wear long pants (jeans are fine), a long sleeve shirt or sweatshirt, and close-toed shoes with a good tread. 

After the tour, have a complete change of clothes including shoes, a towel, and plastic bags for your dirty clothes. There are no changing rooms in the parking lot, but plenty of wooded areas that offer privacy. We suggest dressing in layers.

Those under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver for them, and they must be attending with at least one adult.

Muddy but fun!

We had a blast! Our whole group had a great time. I didn't realize how muddy we would get but I guess what do you expect after heavy rains? I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to have fun!
