Glory Hole Caverns

Although its size does not compare with many of the giants, it is still a fairly sizeable cave for the Coastal Plains. The entrance today is definitely not one for the tourists! It is located in a small sinkhole in the midst of a cultivated field. A few trees remain in the sink and at its bottom lies a very small gated entrance. Soil and rotted leaves, logs, etc. overlie a mass of limestone rocks of various size. To enter now, one must go in feet first and literally "feel your way" down through the tiny shaft that constantly shifts.

Glory Hole Caverns is located in northern Grady County, Georgia about a half mile south of the Grady County-Mitchell Countyline. The entrance is set in a small sinkhole in the middle of a field alongside Hawthorne Trail (Ga. Hwy. 112) about 10 miles north of Cairo, the county seat of Grady County and about 9 miles southwest of Pelham, Ga.

The cave is just east of Mizpah Baptist Church, located on a side road just south of the county line.
