The hike through the caverns is well worth it to see the amazingly beautiful stalagtites and stalagmites. They have beautiful accent lighting to really show off natures amazing work. It is definitely a hike so I would recommend comfortable shoes with good traction

A great place to visit and just a short trip from the strip on Piegon Forge. Certainly worth the ticket price.
