Description

For visitors looking for a more adventurous caving experience that will not be as crowded as the main cavern, the Slaughter Canyon Cave tour is a great option. Slaughter Canyon Cave is only accessible via a ranger-led tour which will take you into an underground wilderness without paved walkways or electricity.

This pathways in the cave are uneven, narrow, and slippery so be sure to wear appropriate footwear. Along the way, you'll get to see the 89-foot high Monarch, one of the world's tallest columns, the Christmas Tree, a sparkling column, and the Chinese Wall, a delicate rimstone dam. Old bat guano mining excavations attest to the historic presence of humans in the area as well. More information about the cave and the tour can be found on the park's website.

Reservations are required for tours of Slaughter Canyon Cave. Reservations can be made by calling 877-444-6777 or online.

Short Hike: The cave entrance can be accessed from a short hike up the Slaughter Canyon Cave Trail.
