Ah, the Connecticut cave. So many caves across the Constitution State don’t really constitute a cave in the truest sense. Whether they are coined the Leatherman caves or King Philip’s Cave, they are usually large overhangs or huge glacial boulders piled high on top of each other or tumbled next to ledges.
There are some true caves usually tucked away into the limestone of the northwest corner like Twin Lakes Cave — the state’s first and only tour cave — long closed to the public. Bolton’s “Squaw Cave,” New Milford’s “Tory’s Cave” and the caves within Seymour’s Little Laurel Lime Park also reach that honest-to-goodness cave status.
