Cave Hikes Suspended

Tennessee State Parks has suspended cave tours at Dunbar Cave State Natural Area after a bat from Dunbar Cave tested positive for White Nose Syndrome. Other park activities and events, including fishing, hiking and picnic facilities will remain open and available to the public. The Cave is being closed indefinitely in an effort to take every necessary precaution to isolate the fungus as much as possible in order to protect bat populations at other nearby hibernacula, recognizing that bat-to-bat transmission is still possible. Any questions regarding Cave Hikes should be directed to Park Service Employees.
