Laurel Caverns

Laurel Caverns

Laurel Caverns, the largest cave system in Pennsylvania, is located 2,600′ above sea level in Fayette county, PA.  On a clear day, you can see four surrounding counties, the Pittsburgh skyline and of course, Fayette county.

The three miles of paths through the caverns average about 12′ high and generally range from 10′ to 20′ high, with some ceilings reaching 50′.

The traditional guided tour is one hour and covers about 3,000′ of walking distance.  No special equipment is needed, but the caverns are 52 degrees all the time and there are slopes and steps.  All passages on the traditional guided tour are lighted.

Spelunking, caving and rappelling are all available for an extra fee, although release forms and age restrictions may apply.
