Colossal Cavern is a cave in Kentucky, the main entrance of which is at the foot of a steep hill beyond Eaton Valley, and 1.5 miles from Mammoth Cave. It is connected with what has long been known as the Bedquilt Cave. Several entrances found by local explorers were rough and difficult. They were closed when the property was bought in 1896 by the Louisville & Nashville railway and a new approach made. From the surface to the floor is 240 feet (73 m) under Chester Sandstone and in the St. Louis Limestone. Fossil corals fix the geological age of the rock. The temperature is uniformly 54 ¡F (12 ¡C), and the atmosphere is optically and chemically pure. There are gypsum rosettes and helictites. On August 22, 1960, a crew consisting of Jack Lehrberger, Spike Warner, and Dave Deamer discovered and surveyed a connection to nearby Salts Cave. The two cave surveys were linked to the already-connected Collins Crystal Cave and Unknown Cave on August 21, 1961. The integrated survey was dubbed the Flint Ridge Cave System, and by March 1969, it was ranked the longest surveyed cave in the world, at about 65 miles. On September 9, 1972, a connection was found to Mammoth Cave, forming the Flint-Mammoth Cave System (144 miles).
