This Forbidden Haunted Underground New York Cave Is a Halloween Must
Experience a hair-raising tour underground, walking through forbidden New York caves with only a lantern to guide the way....if you dare.
The Haunted Cave Lantern Tour along the Erie Canal is back for 2022. The eerie guided tour leads you along the dark waters of the Erie Canal, telling folklore, tales, and creepy stories as you enter the forbidden tunnels and caves under Lockport, New York where it's 55 degrees year-round. You'll walk by stalactites, flowstones, various geological formations, and artifacts left behind by those who built the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal.
The Haunted Cave Lantern Tour on the Erie Canal has been a staple in Western New York for more than 40 years and was even profiled on an episode of the Ghost Hunters TV show.
