“see inside a mountain”

For centuries, the marvels of Linville Caverns were unknown to man.  In the early 1800's a fishing expedition headed by Henry E. Colton, of eastern NC, were astounded to see fish swimming in and out of what appeared to be rather solid rock.  A small opening in the mountainous terrain allowed them to enter the subterranean recess that is still home to native trout in an underground stream. Linville Caverns was opened for public touring in 1937.  Since that time many upgrades to the pathways and lighting system have enhanced the safe touring experience that now exists.  Courteous and experienced guides take you into the subterranean world, giving you the history of the caverns and allowing you to view the grand work of nature.

Great tour guides and a nice way to escape the summer heat. Loved hearing about the Civil War-era soldiers that hid in the caverns.

Whole family loved it. You do get sprinkled on so bring a poncho or hooded rain jacket if you don't want to get wet.
