Kartchner Caverns State Park

This massive cave system was discovered in 1974, kept hush-hush until its fragile features could be properly protected, then cautiously opened to public tours in two phases (1999 and 2003). Tour routes are paved and narrow but handicap-accessible; touching the stalactites and stalagmites is tempting but strictly prohibited, and time-specific reservations are recommended.
