Tours available June 14 through August 16.
Explore the remote sections of Crystal Cave on a belly-crawling tour. This tour gives you the opportunity to learn about Sierran caves first hand. Your cave guide will explain how the delicate formations such as soda straws, rimstone dams and cave pearls are formed. Learn proper caving techniques, etiquette and conservation issues from experienced cavers. Experience total darkness and silence interrupted by the rhythmic sounds of dripping and flowing water. Explore off-trail, crawl and climb through passage ways, over steep drop-offs and past intricate formations on a 4 to 6 hour tour within this marble cave. Expect to come away with great memories, new knowledge and insight, intermingled with sore muscles and a thick coating of dirt from head to toe. Caving gear is provided. Limited to ages 16 and older. Space is VERY limited and popular. Call 559.565.4251 to register.
