You'll see excellent examples of cave mineral deposits, along with the pools and long linear corridors that are typical for Mystery Cave and Turquoise Lake.

Many formations are actively dripping. These features are illuminated with dramatic lighting that accents the cave in light and shadow.

This stroller and wheelchair accessible tour involves 3/4 mile of walking on modern paved trails and metal bridges.
