Caving with Taylor was so much fun! I was ready for an easy walk through the cave, but was pleasantly surprised when I got to crawl through secret tunnels and (carefully) slide down muddy hills. It’s impossible to describe exactly how beautiful the cave itself...More

USA Raft does not have a weight restriction. We welcome all rafters as long as they are excited to be on the water and willing to paddle! We carry extra small to extra-large PFD's (personal flotation devices).

Worley's Cave (0 Replies)
We are considering doing the wild cave hike through Worley's Cave and I've found several companies that offer guided expeditions, including Appalachian Underground and USA Raft. Can anyone offer advise on which tour to take? Who has the best guides and provides the best overall experience?
