Desert Caves, Caverns & Mines Overview
California Desert Caves and mines include a cave in an ancient mountain range, mud caves and a long deserted ghost town mine. Desert Caves and mines are all uniquely interesting. Marvel at the stalagmites and stalactites of Mitchell Caverns. Navigate the maze of slot canyons at Arroyo Tapiado Mud Caves. Walk into an abandoned silver mine at Calico Ghost Town. Most caves and mines hover around 60 degrees year round, making these underground attractions a great place to cool off on a warm summer day.
WARNING: Caves & mines can be dangerous and deadly. Please use caution and common sense when exploring a cave. Don't enter a cave without a light source and necessary safety equipment. Choose not to explore a cave if in doubt and stay alive.
WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME: Bat populations in the U.S. are suffering devastating losses due to White-Nose Syndrome. Learn about this disease before entering caves and see what you can do to prevent its spread.
