Usually caves that i visit are hugh but this seceret cavers is a tiny narrow walk in where it will lead you to a waterfall at the end. The caves is slightly damp in some spots hence walk carefully.

We did this as a side trip to Massachusetts. I definitely recommend. Out your guide Eugene was very funny and I enjoyed that it didn't seem scripted. We also got to experience it with just flashlights which was really cool. The stairs are a pain...More

We came here after a planned Howe Caverns visit (which was closed despite website info to the contrary). it certainly is smaller and less touristy and the women's restroom was out of paper towels at 11:30 am, and the only food available to buy is...More

it's about $18 for adults and if you go to their web site their is a $2 off coupon. the tour is 45 minutes but isn't as fancy as Howe's cavern. tours head down about every 20 minutes.
