Colossal Cave – Explore AZ!

Colossal Cave Mountain Park is a great place for the whole family to have an adventure! Colossal Cave may be the world’s largest dry cavern. It extends into the mountain approximately 600 feet and descends about 40 feet below the entrance. The interior temperature is naturally 70 degrees every day of the year, making it a great place to visit in the summer to escape the heat. Colossal Cave tours have been ongoing since 1923. The regular guided tour lasts about 50 minutes, on a route that is a half mile long and goes down and back up 363 stairs. The tour guide relates the cave’s history, legends, and geology as you view a rich variety of cave formations like stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, boxwork, and helictites. Wild cave tours, ladder tours and candlelight tours are also available. We did the regular tour this trip, but are already planning to go back next summer to do the ladder tour!

The cave is just one part of the park, they also have camping and picnic grounds, trail rides, treasure hunting, hiking trails, museums, a library, gift shops and restaurants.

Location: 16721 E. Old Spanish Trail, Vail, AZ 85641
It’s about 27 miles South-East of Tucson. From Tucson, just take I-10 East and look for the signed turnoff for Colossal Cave Rd and follow the signs to the park.
