An expanded fall tour schedule at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park, located between Spring Valley and Preston, will provide numerous opportunities to explore Mystery Cave before it closes for the season.
The guided, one-hour tours follow concrete trails about three-quarters of a mile through dramatically lit cave formations along with pools, lakes and long, linear corridors. Tours are accessible to wheelchairs and strollers and are suitable for all ages.
The tours will be offered every day in September, on weekends in October and on Thursday, Oct. 17, and Friday, Oct. 18, when school is out for annual Education Minnesota conference.
Admission to the cave is $10 for ages 13 and older, $6 for ages 5-12, and no charge for ages 4 and under (ticket required). A vehicle permit ($5/one-day or $25/year-round) is also required for entrance to the park and cave. Permits can be purchased at the cave or main park office.
