Explore the inside of a mountain!

Located in northern McDowell County, the caverns are easy to get to and open year round to the public. While an activity like caving might not be something that you and your group finds particularly interesting, exploring a historic Western NC Attraction like the Linville Caverns are perfect for the young and old.
The caverns opened back in the late 1930's and are the only show caverns that you can visit in the state of the North Carolina. The temperature inside the caverns remains fairly constant, around 58 degrees due to the fact that they are in the interior part of a mountain. The caverns formed from a deposit of Shady Dolomite at the base of Humpback Mountain in Linville. Guided tours are given daily and you can photograph the stalacties and stalagmites that have formed over the millions of years. Visitors are asked not to touch the subterranean formations as they are highly sensitive to the oils on our bodies and are still actively forming.
Linville Caverns NC are home to a few types of plant and animal life. Blind fish navigate through the dark waters of the stream that makes its way into the caverns and aids in their formation. Tiny little brown bats, Eastern Pipistrelles, also hibernate in the cave from late fall until the spring.
