This little cave passage slowly winds it’s way underground for hundreds of feet before joining up with another passage and a bigger system.

This section is a bedding plane passage – the roof is flat and it was formed many thousands of years ago when water seeped into a crack and eventually ‘ate’ it’s way downwards – the acid in the rainwater slowly dissolving the limestone. More water filled the cracks and over time a cave system was born.

It is a peaceful place – but it has a terrible secret. A cloudburst on the surface can fill it to the roof with roaring brown foamy water. You have to be careful…time your trip right…watch the weather. Several have perished in these caves.
