Lechuguilla Cave lies beneath Carlsbad Caverns National Park in southeastern New Mexico. Since its discovery in 1984, more than 136 miles of cave have been mapped though the single, artificial entrance.
In central New Mexico, the longest known cave formation in the world, Snowy River, contains 26.92 miles of surveyed length. The white calcite floor runs the length of the known cave passage, now over 10 miles long. Exploration and survey teams continue to map the passage and other leads in feats that involve trips more than 24 hours long.
