Neversink Falls - Trip Details

As a large family, we find renting a home for a night much more relaxing than a hotel, and it's so nice to have a place nearby to crash after a long day of hiking! You can find nice, affordable homes on Vrbo.

Since the Neversink Preserve property was bought and established by the Southeastern Cave Conservancy in 1995, the SCC has been using a permitting process to control access to the preserve. Once you and your group is approved for a permit, you'll need to place it on your car when you're visiting. You'll get details on parking from SCC. If you're looking to pick up the skills required for a visit and don't have them yet, consider connecting with a local caving group.  You can find a list of the ones in Alabama at

You can request a permit from the SCCi on their site.

Neversink Pit is closest to Stephen's Gap, another SCC property that requires a permit to visit. For less extreme waterfalls that are open to anyone, the hike to Lost Sink Falls is a fun one and Pisgah Gorge Falls is just across the river.

But, you can still get over to DeSoto Falls and the falls in the Fort Payne, Alabama area including Little River Canyon National Preserve in an hour or so.

  1. The title and photo are for Neversink Cave, but all the information is for Stevens Gap Cave. Neversink is further NE than Stevens Gap.
