This is a weekend trip or a day trip if you prefer.

Camping is available at the Schoarie field house right next to Schoarie Cave.

I will be going up Friday evening and cave trips will be available on Saturday and Sunday.

Do not wear your cave clothes in the car. There are changing areas at the cave parking lots. Make sure you bring an empty garbage bag for your dirty cave clothes for the ride home.

Also make sure that you bring separate shoes for caving.

 

This is what you should bring to wear in the cave:

Poly pro bottom and top

Sweatshirt or jacket

Gloves – gardening gloves, leather gloves, rubber gloves

Hiking socks –  Synthetic not cotton

Sweatpants or loose fitting pants preferably not cotton

Old hiking boots or work boots are better than sneakers.

Very important- knee pads and elbow pads.  You will do some crawling.

You may choose to bring a fanny pack or a small day pack in the cave. You should bring a small bottle of water, some snacks and a camera.

You may also want to bring sandwiches or other food.

I will be carrying a cave pack with extra batteries and extra plastic bags for warmth if needed (only for an emergency).

If you have any questions you can contact me by telephone

Contact Mark’s @ Schoarie Cave trip June 28-30
