The cave was recently discovered in 1974, and since access to it has been strictly regulated, it is considered a “living” cave. Visitors will have the chance to experience a wide variety of unique minerals and formations. Since water still drips into the cave, the calcite formations continue to grow and change. The cave is only viewable by a guided 90-minute tour, but the Discovery Center is open to the public. At the Discovery Center, there is plenty of educational information, exhibits, and a large gift shop. Close to the Caverns, there are also campgrounds, hiking trails, and shaded picnic areas that visitors can enjoy. So if a trip to Arizona is in your future, make sure to put Cochise County on your list of places to go.
