You will encounter narrow passageways, ladders (some up to 20 feet high) and muddy trails. Experience the passageways that are said to have “turned Higgenbotham’s hair white” before he made it out.


  • A hike through the beautiful hills of Tennessee.
  • Ladders in the Caverns: If you think you climbed some ladders in “Rocky Topper” just wait till you see the ladders in this adventure!
  • See the room and ledge where Aaron Higgenbotham spent 3 frightful days and nights.
