Logsdon Cave Preserve (William Halliday Cave Preserve)

SCCi leases the William R. Halliday Cave Preserve located in Hart County, Kentucky. The property is comprised of approximately 40 acres of wooded land located on the side of Northtown Ridge near Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. The property contains Logsdon Cave, a wet multi-drop cave. The entrance is a vertical shaft approximately 35 feet deep which enters a crawl to a series of 8 drops from 15 to 60 feet in depth. The cave is over 200 feet deep, approximately 500 feet long and is very close to known passage in Fisher Ridge Cave.

The Nashville Grotto currently manages this preserve, and a permit is required to enter the cave. Each party must have someone on the trip who is an approved Logsdon Cave Trip Leader. A small campsite is present on the property; however, water is not currently available. It is recommended that you enter Logsdon Cave during the dryer warmer months because it is wet and draws a great deal of cold air in the winter.

NOTICE: To help prevent the spread of the deadly White Nose Syndrome (WNS) affecting bat populations, please read the SCCi Cave Visitation Policy and follow the guidelines.
