according to the NSS Cave Files Maine has 228 caves and New Hampshire has 188. Of course those are just "reported". they might be 6 mile long systems, a 20ft crack, or not even actually exist.
I'm not scared of the dark, it's the things IN the dark that make me nervous. :)

Here is a link for caves in Maine.

The 2002 NSS Convention Maine Guidebook also would be a good way to learn more about Maine caves.

And here is a link for caves in New Hampshire.

The Northeastern Regional Organization of the NSS also has a list of caves by region including Maine and New Hampshire that are mentioned in their publication called the Northeastern Caver in this link.

I've been to many caves in both NH and Maine. All those I've seen in NH are talus caves or fractures. Most of those I have visited in Maine are Sea Caves, and there are certainly dozens of those, albeit mostly small ones. There are some small solutional caves farther North in Maine; to my knowledge, there are none in NH.

There are definitely no 6-mile systems.
