This cave has long, straight chambers, something you rarely see in a cave. Balance Rock is also a novelty. Worth a visit.

Very beautiful cave inside with lots of formations and passageways. 4 different paths branch off inside, so tour is nice and long. Love the narrow passages with tall ceilings, some must be 50-60 feet high! Various formations along paths provide lots of photo ops. Absolutely...More
