High Country Recreation is partnering with River and Earth Adventures for an upcoming LOCAL caving trip to Worley’s Cave on Saturday, January 31st. Join other local families (children over the age of 5 would have a BLAST) for an underground caving experience you will never forget!

Explore this non-commercial cave (no sidewalks or electricity) with helmets, high power headlamps, experienced guides, and your imagination. Crawl through tunnels and walk through chambers in one of the largest caves in our region. This is an ideal experience to get introduced to the interesting and adventurous world of caving!

Locals who would like to attend need to email their interest to grant@raftcavehike.com or you can call 828-773-4122 to reserve your spot. The reduced cost for locals is $40/adults and $10/each child. The group will meet at River and Earth Adventures Outfitters (next to Sunrise Grill) at 10am on Saturday the 31st and will carpool together to the Elizabethton, TN outpost where they will be outfitted with gear and meet their tour guides. The trip inside the cave will be somewhere between 2-4 hours. Individuals will be responsible for packing their own lunch and water for the day and will be expected back in Boone around 5-6pm.

Participants should expect to get VERY dirty. Blue jeans and top layers are recommended with shoes that have good tread and you don’t mind getting VERY muddy. Wool socks are also recommended. You will need to bring a COMPLETE change of clothes as well as a trash bag to place dirty clothes into for the ride home.

You can check out more of the adventures available through River and Earth Adventures at raftcavehike.com! Make sure to follow both River and Earth Adventures and High Country Recreation on facebook as they will be doing a give-away for 4 children to be able to attend the trip!
