Slaughter Canyon Cave is a ranger-guided hike in Carlsbad Caverns National Park. It is a separate from the main cavern and is maintained in a more primitive state, without lighting or paved trails. Slots on the tour need to be reserved in advance through recreation.gov. It offers a quiet alternative to the sometimes crowded main cavern.
