Unspoiled Beauty

Impressive only begins to describe the unspoiled beauty that is found within Raccoon Mountain Caverns.  The Crystal Palace walking tour is an easy, 45-min. (approx) educational adventure that offers visitors the opportunity to view an astounding array of natural and diverse cave formations.   The Crystal Palace room, the largest formation chamber in the South, has everything from delicate soda straws to large stalagmites, flowstone formations, and even a very rare shield formation.    Also available, by appointment, are wild cave “spelunking” expeditions that go into the more remote portions of the cave system. These tours vary in length, degree of difficulty, and require some hands & knees and belly crawling.  All equipment is provided.  Please be sure to sift for gemstones at our rustic panning trough or test your skills on our go-kart track.  Call 423-821-9403 for more information. Located just minutes from downtown, take I-24 west to exit #174 (Lookout Valley) then go north of US 41 1.3 miles to the entrance on left. Open daily at 9 a.m. www.wildcave.com. www.raccoonmountain.com
