Limrock Blowing Cave Preserve

Limrock Blowing is a three-mile-long stream cave with large walking passage, pretty rooms, and nice formations. Limrock is one of SCCi’s most popular caves, and for good reason. This cave does flood in wet weather so be cautious when planning your visit.

Limrock Preserve includes the cave entrance and approximately 48 acres. The property is nice for hiking, photography, and bird watching.  Limrock Blowing Cave is Alabama’s 15th longest cave, with a surveyed length of 15,505 feet of primarily horizontal passage.

DO NOT park near the barn when visiting Limrock cave.  SCCi does not own the barn or the field beside it. If you park there, you car may be towed away. We have constructed a parking area on SCCi’s property for use by visitors.  If there are too many cars and you cannot find an acceptable place to park, please go elsewhere and visit another day. Your cooperation is appreciated.

When visiting the preserve, please park in the designated parking area on the SCCi property. Do not park at the barn or field uphill from the cave. Visitors are warned that in heavy rains the cave floods completely. SCCi requests that visitors not enter the cave when rain is in the forecast. Flooding can occur very quickly and with little or no warning!
