Terrific GUIDE For Carlsbad Caverns National Park

Carlsbad Caverns National Park quietly lies 750 feet underground within the Guadalupe Mountains.

Peering down into the cave entrance, your heart races with excitement.

Hike the 1.25-mile Natural Entrance Trail from the cave’s mouth to the main attraction, the Big Room.

The Big Room spans over 8 acres, North America’s largest, readily accessible cave chamber.

Cave formations develop from water slowly dripping onto limestone, one drop at a time. Structures started more than 500,000 years ago.

The temperature in the cavern consistently remains 56 degrees Fahrenheit.

Many visitors mistakenly believe they see bats flying near the cave’s entrance when hiking the Natural Entrance Trail.

These are cave swallows. Bats prefer deeper, darker cave sections and are more active at night.
