The Cathedral Caverns of Alabama
Image left: Goliath Believed to be the world's largest stalagmite column inside a commercial cave, standing 45 ft. tall and 243 ft. around. Estimates make this formation billions of years old.
Experience the beauty of the stalagmite formations with special lighting that further enhances their natural beauty, all with names that fit their shapes and size. The cavern will carry you 3,559 feet from the time you enter the cave until reaching the end of the tour.
Alabama's newest state park! The first thing you notice about Cathedral Caverns is the massive entrance. The huge opening measures 126 feet wide and 25 feet high. And it gets even better. Inside the cavern, you will find Big Rock Canyon, Mystery River and some of the most beautiful formations Mother Nature has ever created. Among them, you will see Stalagmite Mountain, The Frozen Waterfall and Goliath, a huge stalagmite column that reaches the ceiling of the cave some 45 feet above!
