Come explore Cooper's Cave on the Hudson River in Glens Falls NY!

Learn how "these dark and silent caves" inspired author James Fenimore Cooper to write one of his most famous and beloved novels, The Last of the Mohicans which was then made into a movie by Michael Mann in 1992. Above the cave is the Cooper's Cave Bridge, which connects the Village of South Glens Falls and the City of Glens Falls.

Next to the bridge there is a viewing platform that offers information about James Fenimore Cooper and the Mohican tribe. When you visit the cave you can experience the protection that the Mohicans felt when they were hiding for their attempted escape.

The cave is part of New York State's historic Independent trail and is open from Memorial Day to October 31st every year from 9am-8pm. Admission is free but to arrange a group tour you must call in advance at (518) 761-3864
