Springville Cave

Springville Cave is a very popular cave and has had several large stalagmite broken by careless explorers. It is mostly horizontal following a fissure in the cliff for about 300 feet. There are a few places to chimney up into the ceiling and find a few other passages if you are daring enough and willing to hold on to guano. This cave may also be known as Rocky Bottom Cave or Rabbit Ear Cave.



As you can see there has been a lot of damage to these curtains.

Lots of curtains.

The upper portion has some nice features like this interesting column.

This isn't the cave known around Springville as Rabbit Ear cave, because Rabbit ear was actually a mine. It was still the hole in the ground that my uncle showed me that got me into caving though.

This cave is flipping sweet. Takes a long time to get through since it is so narrow, and you have to inch your way around, but definitely worth the hike.

After climbing the rope up the large chimney and following passage way through the tiny side squeeze spot you get to the room most people consider the end but there is a chimney with water dropping down it and I was wondering if anyone has been in it?
