About Linville Caverns

Located at the southern gateway to western NC's High Country region, Linville Caverns is an ideal destination for visitors of all ages.  The beauty of our mountains is echoed within Humpback Mountain and visitors are invited to explore the splendor and wonders nature created "inside a mountain".

For centuries, the marvels of Linville Caverns were unknown to man.  In the early 1800's a fishing expedition headed by Henry E. Colton, of eastern NC, were astounded to see fish swimming in and out of what appeared to be rather solid rock.  A small opening in the mountainous terrain allowed them to enter the subterranean recess that is still home to native trout in an underground stream.
