Instead of the rock washing away from moving water, the Crystal Grottoes Caverns were formed by groundwater that dissolved through the limestone at a rate of 10 feet per year. Also known as solution caves because of this formation process, the Crystal Grottoes Caverns are the only commercialized caverns on the east coast to have formed in a syncline through this process.

**Tips: wear hiking shoes, bring a headlamp & flashlight, bring clothes to be comfortable in the caves (52 degrees F), bring a water bottle

Cave rules: no touching the formations & no taking videos
