Caving in West Virginia


West Virginia’s splendor is not only found on the surface, but deep below it in its many caverns as well. Explorations can reveal one of the best kept secrets below the mountains. Locals will share their “secret” spots, but lots of caves are also open to the public and offer varying experiences that can range from a walk along a well-lit path to a spelunker’s dream challenge.
