Boulder Cave

May 18th, 2024

Vermont Cavers Assocation visits Boulder Cave in Dorset, VT.

This 270 ft cave has about 60 ft of relief and some of the best erosion work and speleothems in the region. Tricky drops, razor sharp surfaces, and water exposure are the primary hazards. The blue and gray marble is folded and twisted to the point that some very interesting patterns have been created. There are a few climbs, on some of which the use of a handline is advisable.

VCA Visits Windy River

May 11th, 2024

This cave was discovered in 2015 by the Berkshire Area Diggers Association. It is formed in unusually undeformed, thin-bedded marble and alternates between wide hands-and-knees crawlways and walking-height stream passage, a rare developmental pattern for Vermont. The cave also has numerous rare and delicate formations that are also unusual for the state.

Windy River is privately owned and not open without permission
