The Faery Cave in Great Meadows, New Jersey

The Faery Cave

Faery Cave is completely untamed, located along a path with no kiosks, signs, or flattened walkways. The cave’s entrance is 15 feet wide and six feet high, with a total depth of around 30 feet. Around 15 feet in, the cave narrows and the ceiling drops, but it’s still easily traversable with a little hunching down.

At the end of the cave, visitors will find a small room that may be possible to enter. This small chamber is where Lenape Indian artifacts were uncovered during a 1936 excavation. The cave then cuts to the right and becomes two narrow upward shafts. 

Caution should always be used when traversing the cave.
