Information and Links

There are a number of caves in the area around LTD’s cabins for the spelunking enthusiasts. Some of these caves are within Monongahela National Forests and others are located in Preserves or on private land. The John Guildry Cave Preserve, consisting of the Trout, New Trout and Hamilton Caves and the Sinks of Gandy Cave are just a few caves within a short drive from our cabins. As caving/spelunking can be a dangerous activity the specific locations of these caves have been omitted. For additional information please visit the following organizations web sites:
