Just a few minutes from the Carr Entrance, the fabulous Cascade Hall holds some of Blue Spring's greatest features. A nice canyon passage and short crawl from Johnson Avenue leads to large borehole. Turning south brings one to the Moonscape. The Moonscape is a large dry rimstone pool filled with 2ft high raft cones. The area is flagged off due to its fragility.

Turning north leads through very large borehole to a slick flowstone upclimb to the base of the Oasis. The Oasis is a series of deep (and sometimes full!) rimstone dams rimmed by a large flowstone ring. Two perma-rigged handlines bring you to the top of this highly decorated area.

Past this is several hundred feet of more borehole to a muddy roped downclimb for about 50ft which leads through big, BIG, passage into the Cathedral Room - a 100ft tall decorated room about 200ft by 100ft in size.
