This is not for the beginner trail hiker. It starts out easy enough, but some of the areas have a 30 degree incline and also decline. It is worth it because there are beautiful sights to see and unusual tree formations.

We decided to do this early before we left from our visit and were not disappointed. It is a nice hike with great views. Lots of up and down climbs also makes it a good workout. Wish we had seen it earlier and could have taken a little more time to enjoy it.

My boyfriend and I had 3 hours between Mammoth cave tours. We decided to take this hike. It was lush and green, but nothing spectacular. The hike is fairly easy, with a few sets of stairs. The views are average, and the trail was not crowded. I personally wold not go out of my way to do this trail, but... More

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

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.
