Cub Run Cave

Description

 Lauded by many as one of the most beautiful caves in America, Cub Run Cave offers a half-mile tour (1 ½ hours) on an elevated wooden walkway (easy walking) cascaded with thousands of beautiful formations, such as flow stone, cave bacon, cave popcorn, rim stone dams, cave corals, stalactites and stalagmites. In addition to the formations, there is a natural pool that was formed by a dip from the cave ceiling. Cub Run Cave has the distinction of being one of the four caves in the United States to have the rare formation called box work. You may have the chance to see elusive cave crawfish, salamanders, crickets and three types of bats (big brown, small brown and Eastern Pipestrelles). Note: This cave is very accessible with only a few steps.
