Shorts and t-shirt recommended for wear under required coveralls. It is required you bring an extra pair of shoes for use after off-trail adventure.

Know Before You Go
This is a strenuous and very physical tour. Participants need to be in good physical shape, because the tour involves climbing, crawling, stooping, stretching, etc. to traverse the cave. Participants must wear boots with ankle support, and need to bring an extra pair of shoes post-tour. No tennis or athletic-type shoes allowed during tour! Available by reservation only. Each tour must have a minimum of 3 participants. Due to the possible spread of disease to bats, participants may not use personal caving gear or backpacks. Particpants may bring light uncrushable snacks. If the Wild Cave Tour is not shown as available online, please call the Caverns directly at 1-870-757-2211.
