Sierra Nevada Caves, Caverns & Mines Overview
Sierra Nevada caves feature stalactites, stalagmites, curtains and flowstones. Sierra Nevada caves and caverns are all uniquely interesting. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks feature two of the most interesting caves in the state. Join the standard cave tour or take the 'Wet Trail Tour' at Boyden Cavern. Upgrade to the 'Wild Cave Tour' at Crystal Cave to climb and crawl the cave at will. 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.
