Nestled in the hallowed halls of hollow earth, Secret Caverns is a small commercial cavern located in upstate New York. Founded by local civil engineer Roger Mallery, the caverns have hosted Americas roadside travellers and seekers of subterranean knowledge and the batsquatch since its discovery by intrepid bovine explorers in 1928.
Visitors to the cave can expect a 45 minute to 1 hour guided walk through an unsullied but accessible prehistoric passageway encrusted by the patient hand of time. Mother Natures handiwork can be easily viewed in the form of stalactites, stalagmites, and flowstone. Because visitors enter the cavern by use of the petrified escalator (the 103 stairs), the various layers of limestone deposited faithfully by the prehistoric ocean, which covered North America during the Silurian-DEVOnian eras, one can easily view Americas "first" settlers in the form of brachiopods, corals, and crinoids.
The tour culminates when one reaches the world famous 100 ft underground waterfall. Truly a wonder of nature, this rare sight is unmatched among showcaves.
The caverns maintain a year round temperature of 50 degrees F (~10 degrees C). As a result, we recommend a light jacket or sweater and comfortable walking shoes. Cameras, pictures, and touching of the formations and ghosts is allowed, as is not the case with most other showcaves in the US.
