The name assumes you will see a man made structure but it is a natural cave with interior water fall. No wonder the Pequot Indian tribe considered it a sanctuary and holy place. Wear hiking boots/shoes as the last few hundred feet of hike is...More

Nice walk to take for the young and the old. The cave is beautiful and easy to get to, and there are more challenging trails as well.

This is a small-town preserve, which began in 2004 by offering a single short hike, ending at the Dover Stone Church — an extraordinary cave-like natural formation. This is one of my favorite short hikes and friends are always impressed by the 30-foot waterfall cascading...More

Not that we ever saw. It is wet inside and you have to skip across rocks to avoid falling in the water. People walk their dogs there a lot. That's the only type of animal I've seen in or around the cave. That and... More
