Conquer Cardwell Mountain on a WILD Caving Adventure!
Cumberland Caverns knows all the best adventures don’t start with a plan. Therefore, we have two wild caving tours available every Saturday without a reservation. You read that right. No 10-day advance reservation required for the Saturday 10 AM Rocky Topper or the 2 PM Higgenbotham’s Revenge adventure tours!
At 10 AM CST, you and your crew can join us for the perfect introduction to spelunking, our Rocky Topper Adventure Tour. When you take on the Rocky Topper, you will twist, turn, climb, and wind your way through passages deep within the cavern. You and your group will enjoy the perfect 56-degree climate, share lots of laughs, and make many happy memories to last a lifetime on this adventure.
This spelunking trip is designed for ages 6 and up and takes you through some of the most loved areas of the cave- and with names like “Lemon Squeezer and Bubblegum Alley,” you are guaranteed to have fun! So, grab your family and friends and join us for an incredible underground adventure today!
If you cannot make the 10 o’clock tour, we have a Higgenbotham’s Revenge leaving out at 2 PM CST.
Higgenbotham’s Revenge, for ages 11 and up, is recommended for experienced explorers and thrill seekers in good shape. During this tour, you will follow the historic route of the discoverer, Aaron Higgenbotham. The tour begins with a 1½ mile hike across Cardwell Mountain to the Higgenbotham Entrance. During your wild spelunking adventure, 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.
The journey is definitely the destination when you take your hiking trip to the next level-UNDERGROUND!
