My family and a friend of my daughter's hiked the Cedar Sink Trail during our recent camping trip to Mammoth Cave. I would call this a "moderate" hike with lots of stairs. The sink hole at the end is well worth the trip as is the river which exits and re-enters the cave. Very cool. It's in an area of... More

My husband and I just visited Mammoth Cave with our six month old daughter. We had hiked one of the loops by the visitor center on our first day and did this trail on our second. Due to the season, there wasn't much in the way of greenery/wild life but the walk in was pretty and serene. The loop around... More

This is one of our favor places to visit. A great place to view the wildflowers in the spring. Easy walk to the top of the valley, however, to go down into the valley one must descend several metal steps.

The site for reviewing Mammoth Cave is so full of options it does not lend itself to such reviews as this: There ARE alternatives to caving at the park. This is especially handy to know if you have little ones or people who just do not want to go under ground. There are trails that are worth walking. There are... More

We had just reached Mammoth cave hotel and preferred to go for some trails before sunset as the next day we had booked tours. This one was short & nearby so we tried it first. A neat path with comfortable walkway couple of stairs when nearing the depression..it took us about an hour for the complete trip..taking kids can be... More

About a mile long. Lots of stairs in the loop. Very pretty surroundings, mosty woods with some rocky cut offs. I loved the landing areas for picture taking and sitting to just take it all in. Path is well maintained.

Well marked trail with walkways and plenty of stairs. Approximately 1 mile total - this trail takes you around a large sinkhole with displays along the trail.

Not a lot to see on this trail. It's pretty, but just not a lot of scenic views.. Just a lot of the same views you get from the other trails in the park

The nature trail is well made, takes you through tall forested areas, down, and back up, many stairs. The destination is a very large Sinkhole, maybe 100 yards by 50 yards, but irregular in shape and heavily treed for the most part. You see a river emerge from under some cliffs, then drop back underground. This is away from the... More

There are dozens of hikes at Mammoth, but we only did the Cedar Sink Trail hike. It’s a nice hike, easy for kids to do, and has some good variety near the end. It was a pretty hike. We were out and back in about an hour. Since we did it early in the day, it wasn’t packed with people.... More
