The North Carolina Cave Tour Near Marion That Belongs On Your Bucket List

North Carolina’s only public cavern that offers official tours is a wonderland of odd twists, turns, formations, and colorful spectacles – all found deep within the recesses of Humpback Mountain. Oddly enough, each year millions of people drive right over top of Linville Caverns without realizing it because the Blue Ridge Parkway crosses the eastern slope of Humpback Mountain.
