Welcome to Grand Caverns, America's Oldest Show Cave
Home > Park Amenities > Trails/Hiking/Biking


Grand Caverns has over 2.5 miles of combined hiking and biking trails. Approximately one (1) mile is level and is considered applicable for both walking and biking. This trail meanders along the borders and lower perimeter of the park. The park has a river associated with its borders, giving the hiker a cool and refreshing walk beside calm waters. The river is also a stocked trout stream and fishing is permitted with a proper license. The remainder of the trails are on the hillside and are of medium difficulty. There are overlooks giving a peek back down into the valley below.

Numerous wildflowers and wildlife are observable while using either trail. It is not uncommon to see a chipmunk or grey squirrel busy about the task of finding food. Both white tail deer and the occasional bear have been sighted on the park. Grand Caverns is also included as an observation site for the Mountain Trail of the Virginia Birding & Wildlife Trail System.
