      What makes Rickwood Caverns State Park unique is the massive cave that contains 260-million-year-old formations that were created by water and reveal evidence that the cave was carved from an ocean bed. If you’re looking to cool off from the sweltering summer temperatures or warm up during those cold winter months, the underground wonder maintains a constant 58-62 degree temperature year round as you travel 175 feet beneath the earth. The main attraction is the guided cave tour. Rickwood Caverns State Park also offers a gift shop, picnicking, gemstone mining, playground, and hiking the Fossil Mountain Hiking Trail, which got its name from the leaf and seashell imprints visible in some of the rocks. The park features an Olympic-size swimming pool, fed by chilly waters from the cave. There’s also a kiddie pool.

       Meet at 9 am near the entrance. We will check out the Fossil Trail before touring the cave. Bring a picnic lunch. Members: $20 adults/ $10 children non-members: $22 adults/$12 children. Includes guided hike, entrance fee and cave fee. Panning for gold and swimming pool activities not included. You must register as size is limited: Events@FreshAirFamily.org
