Hiking To This Aboveground Cave In Tennessee Will Give You A Surreal Experience

Tennessee isn’t known as Ol’ Rocky Top for nothing. Our solid bedrock creates a meandering mine of rock under the soil, twisting into caves and caverns. In the case of Alum Cave, however, it’s found in a craggy outcropping in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Have you ever been? Do you think you’ll head over to the Great Smoky Mountains this summer to give it a whirl?
