Thank you for your interest! This program is now full. Visit the main Programs & Activities calendar to view our other programs.

Carolyn's Caverns, is a natural cave system in Silurian dolostone which is about a 10 minutes’ walk from the nature center.

Participants will use a stair case or ladder to enter the cave system and will be guided by a naturalist staff member throughout the tour. This staff member will give safety directions which need to be followed. 

Carolyn’s Cavern’s has 4 large caves that are connected by crawl tunnels. You can go from one cave to another by going through a tunnel. If you choose not to use tunnels you will have the option of using a ladder to enter each cave.

There will be opportunity for kids to crawl in and explore tunnels, some are small and tight, and they will get dirty! We like to say here at Ledge View “the more fun you have, the dirtier you get!”

These are ‘wild’ caves and we do not have paved walkways or electricity. Closed toed shoes, long pants, and long sleeves are a must! A sweatshirt, boots, a hat, and gloves are suggested. Depending on rainfall the caves will also be muddy in areas. Please bring a flashlight other than your phone. This is a walking tour with optional crawling opportunities. The average temperature in the caves is around 55◦F. The tour lasts for 2-2.5 hours depending on the group size, maximum 30 people.

Pre-registration required, $9 per person. Kids must be 5 years and accompanied by an adult.
