With more than 630 kilometers (390 miles) of explored passages, Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave is longest known cave system in the world.

As it is the longest, Mammoth Cave is a must see destination for many cavers. Fortunately for everyone, the National Park Service has been offering cave tours since it became a national park in 1941.

This week, we’d like to know how many of our readers have visited the cave, whether it be on the public oriented ranger led cave tours or during an actual caving trip.

Last Week’s Poll Results

In a what seems to be a common occurrence, we yet again underestimated our readers in last week’s poll. The trend appears to be that most cavers belong to many, many different organizations, with the majority of respondents selecting that they belonged to four or more caving organizations.

Thanks for all the responses!

    I have been to Mammoth Cave about 10 times. It is amazing and over the I have about 15 books and other literature on Mammoth Cave, Sand Cave (Floyd Collins), and even a brochure from the 1930’s on tours of Mammoth Cave. They did offer a 9 hour tour. I’ve also been on the echo river tour which is now closed. Mammoth is number one, however Jewel Cave is my second choice. I am retired and just joined the Wisconsin Speleological Club.
