Don your hard hat, harness, and flashlight, and descend the ladder into the depths of the chasm to observe the striking limestone formations and bats living within. Hike to the cave on your own, or opt to bring a guide who can explain the wildlife of the area. Access to the cave requires visitors be at least 12 years of age.
