Description

White Cliff Cave is a gated wild cave located at Brick City Adventure Park. It is guided several times a year, on spelunking trips. The cave is rather small with various narrow spots, and thus it requires some physical fitness. The educational trips are primarly intended for families and school classes.

This cave has been a popular spot for decades, but free access cause major damages and a lot of rubbish was left inside the cave by careless visitors. The cave is gated since 1987 and was cleaned from the rubish. It is now managed by the Marion County Parks and Recreation Department who offer educational spelunking trips. This is as close to caving you may possibly get on a commercial tour.

This is not a show cave, its guided caving and includes climbing, crawling on hands and knees, and belly crawling on rocky surfaces in tight spaces. Participants should bring clothes to change. For the cave wear long pants, sturdy footwear, and gloves. Caving gear like helmet, headlamp, elbow and knee pads are provided. Minimum age is eight, the group size is limited to six or eight participants, depending on the tour.
