7/2012: The parking area and trail to Breathing Cave, VA have been changed by the cave owners.

Please use the new parking area and new trail ONLY.
1. Sign waiver at owner's house.
2. Drive 1/4 mile past the old parking area to the NEW parking area, which is on the right side of the road. Look for a bright orange mark on the road.
3. The new route to the cave is marked by bright orange blazes.
Eventually the new trail joins with the old road to Breathing Cave, well past the new houses.

Above all, Do Not walk past the new houses near the old parking area!

Please keep to the New Route; do not take shortcuts or 'bushwhack'. There are new houses in the area; these property owners value their privacy.
If these changes do not solve the current problem, the cave will be closed.
This is a small change to keep the cave open in the summer.
Breathing Cave is limited access; open May 15 - Sept. 15. It is closed the rest of the year.
