About Buggy Top Cave
Buggy Top Cave was discovered long ago when travelers along the Buggy Top Trail sought out a cool resting spot for lunch. Buggy Top Cave is said to be the largest cave opening in the state – 80 feet high and 100 feet wide. The cave is formed by the running water and rock breakdown through this finger of the plateau. Inhabitants include several bats, salamanders, crickets and other small creatures. Temperatures remain moderate throughout the year, which serves as a cool retreat during the summer and a warm adventure in the winter.
Here are pictures from a previous trip.
