Russell Cave National Monument

Russell Cave National Monument


Located in Bridgeport, home to Google’s newest Data Center, explore one of three national monuments in Alabama that sits at the end of a 12-mile hiking trail surrounded by 310 acres of pristine woodlands. Archeologists and scientists from National Geographic and Smithsonian have determined that human beings first inhabited the area long before the building of the Great Pyramids in Egypt (over 10,000 years ago). Visitors are invited to take a guided tour or permits are available to visit deeper parts of the cave. Admission is free. For more information, call 256-495-2672 or printable travel guide at www.nps.gov/ruca.
