The Dripstone Trail Tour travels through two huge rooms filled with an incredible variety and number of crystalline formations - sparkling flowstone, towering columns, and delicate soda straws. This shorter, easier trail takes visitors almost half a mile through the Caverns. All stairs can be avoided, however there are several steep ramps.
