Caving — Smoke Hole Caverns

Description

Trout swim through the subterranean pools here at Smoke Hole, one of the most-visited caverns in the eastern states. Its sparkling “Room of Million Stalactites” features the second highest ceiling of any cavern in the eastern U.S., towering 274 feet above the floor. The world’s largest ribbon stalactite, a rare six-ton formation, has been rippled by the gentle air currents that flow through the cavern.
