Welcome to Russell Cave!
We offer the chance to step back in time to learn about the prehistoric people who occupied the cave shelter. Touring inside the cave is not offered or permitted (Compendium), however, through viewing artifacts located in the Visitor Center museum, walking the short boardwalk path to see the entrance to the shelter, or hiking the 1.2 mile nature trail the history of Russell Cave will come to life. In addition to these features, a small picnic area offers the perfect lunch spot to enjoy the rural beauty of Northeast Alabama.
