Walk Straight Through A Cavern On This Alabama Tour
Alabama has one of the largest cave densities in the U.S. Many of the caves are also among the greatest in the world, including Cathedral Caverns. To learn all about Cathedral Caverns, including what you’ll experience during a tour, take a look below.
Cathedral Caverns is located in Woodville, Alabama and is the main attraction at Cathedral Caverns State Park, which opened during the summer of 2000.
What makes Cathedral Caverns stand out from most other caves is the size of its entrance. With a height of 25 feet and a width of 126 feet, it's one of the world's largest cave entrances. This cave was also formed around 350 million years ago.
Each year, people of all ages travel from near and far to tour this spectacular cave. If you're interested in being one of these lucky people, read on to learn more about the tour.
While touring Cathedral Caverns, you'll encounter numerous stalagmites and stalactites of all shapes and sizes. If you're wondering the difference between these two types of limestone formations, it's quite simple. Stalagmites grow from the floor of a cave, while stalactites hang from the ceiling like icicles.
Speaking of stalagmites, you'll be amazed the moment you encounter Goliath, Cathedral Caverns' most famous one. With a height of 45 feet and a circumference of 243 feet, it's one of the world's largest stalagmites.
Another incredible feature you'll encounter on the tour is a frozen waterfall, which has a height of 32 feet and a width of 135 feet. It truly is a sight to see!
