New sections of Glenwood Caverns Fairy Caves will be open to the public starting on May 10th.

Plans for the expansion began last winter after a team exploring the caverns found a route that would allow for the creation of a loop tour.

Since then, Caverns staff have spent months removing rocks and boulders to open a new part of the cave that, according to cave owner Steve Beckley, used to require lots of squeezing and belly crawling.

The creation of the new tour route has increased the capacity of the cave from 84 visitors to over 200 each hour, and resulted in fewer steps for visitors to climb.

The project was originally expected to cost about $250,000.
