How is a wild cave different from a show cave?
Which cave tour should I go on?
The 1 hour tour is designed for people that have never been underground before and aren’t sure how they’re going to react to the unique environment. The 1 hour tour goes into the first room of the cave only, yet still allows participants to see formations, animal life, and complete darkness. You will still be muddy enough for a great after picture!
The 2 hour tour is designed for those looking for more adventure. Participants will go further back in the cave, see more formations, and be physically challenged along the way. While more challenging than the 1 hour, this tour is still appropriate for children age six and up.
The 4 hour tour is a true adventure and offers a chance to explore many of the seldom seen side passages and harder to reach spots inside the cave. This tour is for ages 12 and up and is recommended for those who have experienced caving before.

Where are the caves located?
We offer tours at Cloudland Canyon State Park and Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area, both located in Northwest Georgia. Meeting locations for the caves are given in your confirmation email. Please make sure to read ALL of the email!
Pigeon Mountain tours normally meet on Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area.
Cloudland Canyon tours normally meet at our Outpost in Cloudland Canyon State Park (follow the signs once you are at the park for G3 Adventures. We are close to the Disc Golf Course. Park is located at 122 Cloudland Canyon Park Rd. Rising Fawn, GA 30738)
What’s the difference between the caves?
We lead tours in two different caves, Sitton’s Cave at Cloudland Canyon State Park and Pettyjohn’s Cave at Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area. Sitton’s Cave is a highly decorated horizontal cave with a beautiful river passage. We will crawl in the mud, climb on rocks, and walk through the river throughout the tour. Pettyjohn’s Cave is a physically challenging cave with large piles of rocks and boulders to climb on to get to smaller passages. There are open rooms larger than a house and smaller squeezes less than 2 feet tall.
Where are your winter tours?
During the months of December, January, February, and most of March, we will be closed for public tours. We offer a limited number of group tours and private tours that must be scheduled well in advance and are only available as staff schedules permit. We have found that over the years, we take very few people caving over the winter months, even with the year-round mild temperatures, so we suspend public tours during that time. Send us a message or call us though and we will see what we can do if you have to go underground during the winter! You might be able to shake us out of hibernation!
Why don’t you offer tours at Cloudland Canyon all the time?
Our Pigeon Mountain tours are offered April- November each year except for three dates set aside for a deer hunt on the Wildlife Management Area.
Please see our full calendar for available tours.
How do we get to the cave?
For Cloudland Canyon trips: All participants are required to provide their own transportation to the cave. We caravan from the G3 Outpost building approximately 7 miles down the mountain to the lower parking lot.
For Pigeon Mountain trips: All participants meet in the parking lot beside the cave. We walk a short distance to the cave entrance.
Is there a place to change after the tour?
For Cloudland Canyon trips: There will be a place to change your clothes but there are no showering facilities.
For Pigeon Mountain trips: There are no facilities to change clothes. We recommend wearing layers of clothing for removal after the tour.
