Pinky's Cave

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Pinky's Cave

A painted warning in the cave says “Stop now or Pinky’ll get you!” Pinky’s Cave is a 3-mile concrete drainage ditch. Several decades ago, teenager Robert Pinkman claimed the tunnel for himself and his friends, calling it Pinky’s Cave. It became the stuff of neighborhood legends, a hangout for kids that was good, clean fun. Over the years folks would tell ghost stories there, and a legend grew about a mother and her baby who died in the cave.

Note: The cave is no longer a safe place. Do not enter without proper permission and equipment. Prone to flash flooding.

  1. There was nothing good and clean about Pinky’s Cave. It was a hangout for outcasts not the neighborhood kids. And rumors of satanic rituals being performed down there as well as living sacrafices and lets just say that if you didnt fit in you better not enter. I lived in apartments off midwestern pkwy and we used it to get across town to buy drugs and as well as to hide from cops after curfew. But i never dared say anything because i didnt want people to think i was a punk but the whole way through the tunnel you felt a heaviness on your shoulders and as if somebody was only a few steps behind you following. You were always told one of the rules of the cave was to always walk forward never look back or you will never leave. I dont know didnt care to test it.

    • What year was this when you heard rumors of such things happening in the cave? and do you know what year Pinkman “claimed” the cave?
