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

Oklahoma isn’t known for caves, but it does have a few that are worth visiting. For an extensive underground tunnel system, Alabaster State Caverns is the place to go. But if you’re looking for an easy hike to aboveground caves, head to Robbers Cave State Park in the San Bois Mountains of southeastern Oklahoma. Robbers Cave has over 12 miles of trails that wind you through caves, lakes, streams and breathtaking scenery. The popular caves are made of sandstone (not the usual limestone) and were popular hideouts for outlaws Jesse James and Belle Star. Here are some great photographs of the aboveground caves and Robbers Cave State Park:
