Cave · Nature / Park
Explore a network of caves and tunnels at Linville Caverns, the only privately owned site of its kind in the state. Head into this series of limestone recesses to explore their depths on a guided tour that includes some completely pitch-black sections and others populated by a wealth of stalactites and stalagmites. You'll wander along lit pathways and learn about the history of the caverns' formation, human discovery, lore, and mineral formations. If you're lucky, you may even see some of the resident trout that call the subterranean stream home.
