Caving Trip for Beginner to Advanced
Stephen's Gap is a large, 143 foot deep, very beautiful open-air pit with a separate walk-in entrance. This cave is great for both cavers and non-cavers. Cavers can enjoy dropping the pit while non-cavers can walk into the cave and enjoy the cool air and the beautiful view. In the Spring, there are usually waterfalls pouring into the cave from several sides of the cave. In June and close to summer solstice, the maximum amount of sunlight pours into the cave and makes for some awesome photography.
This cave is located in Jackson County, AL about 7 miles west of the highway 79/highway 35 intersection. It is on private property and the land manager will permit us to visit this cave. We will hike just under 1 mile uphill on a well-marked trail to get to this cave.
