Tumbling Rock Cave

Trailmen Explore a Wild Cave Near Scottsboro, Alabama

Trailmen traveled to Fackler, Alabama, on a cold Saturday to explore Tumbling Rock Cave. The outside temp struggled to reach 40°, but the cave was a comfortable 58°. Many thanks to our guide, Nathan Williams.

The entrance of the cave was marked with needle-sharp icicles.
