Caving

Guided Caving Trips

Caving is an excellent activity for the adventurous and curious individual any time of the year. Cave temperatures remain around 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Feel like a true explorer in an undeveloped, “wild” cave. Rock Dimensions’ guided caving trips use caves that are suitable for beginners, meaning that the main passages are tall enough to walk through, with some narrow corridors and shallow ceilings. These caves also contain much smaller passages branching off and curving back around to the main corridor, so those who have the desire to explore can experience crawling and wiggling through some tight places. The caves are safe for beginners and groups, providing an authentic and beautiful introduction to the life and landscape of the subterranean world.

Location

  • Worleys Cave, Tn

When

  • Consider planning a caving trip in the winter, when outside activities usually slow down. It’s never too cold or too rainy to explore a cave – the climate underground is always cool and damp.

What To Expect

  • Spend 3 – 4 hours inside the cave
  • Discuss cave formations (stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, calcium flows, streams, etc.) and cave life (bats, salamanders, etc.)
  • Explore cave passages with a headlamp, candle, or just your eyes (to get a taste of true darkness)!
  • Experience the nocturnal beauty of a natural cave. Compare the surroundings and experience with a commercial cave.
  • Discuss and use appropriate “leave no trace” etiquette to protect the fragile cave environment.
