I was actually on my way to Luray Caverns when I saw signs for Skyline Caverns. I was coming from the DC area and honestly still had a while to go to get to Luray and was stir crazy in the car. After checking their flawless reviews on trip advisor my friend and I decided to check it out. It was absolutely breath-taking. The caverns have narrow paths and our kept as natural as possible, so wear good shoes! I like the authenticity of the caverns, no hand rails, very few man made path, the only man made items were of course the lights. Our tour guide, Jeff was fantastic he knew the caves inside and out including the rare crystal anthrodites. The tour was also a very small group. Only 4 of us which was nice.
Also the gift shop is one of the best I've ever seen. Everything was reasonably priced and it was full of everything imaginable.
The caves are a must see. Well worth my trip out there.
Really fun and interesting experience! We stopped in about an hour after they opened on Saturday and bought tickets for the tour. Tours run every twenty minutes, so we didn't wait long - just enough time to use the restroom and do a once-over of the gift shop. The caves are beautiful, and while they're lit with colored lights, it's done in such a way that it only enhances the experience. Our tour guide was full of information about the history and geology of the caves, and presented it in a pun way. The walk through is fairly easy, although there are some steeper areas, with handrails. There is a set of stairs at the end of the tour. The path is well maintained and evened out with fine gravel. It was about 54 degrees in the caves when we toured. The rooms with the anthracite were really neat, and it was exciting to hear how they were discovered and to see something so rare. The gift shop has a lot of neat stones and geodes, as well as other cave related merchandise.
