Dunbar cave has a couple of nice hiking trails and the scenery is really nice. The entrance to the cave is really neat, and there is some history there. The little museum was closed while we were there, but I am looking forward to a return trip to hike and go thru the museum.

If you are looking for a good trail run or walk in clarksville, Dunbar Cave is a great choice. There are two trails you can choose from and it is quick to get there from almost anywhere in town.

We recently went to Dunbar Cave State Park to take some family photos. The scenery is very nice this time of year. It's a great place to do some hiking, running, walking or just enjoying the outdoors. Plenty of nature and wildlife to be seen and enjoyed. It's also a great place for photography. Free family fun!

We found out when we got there that you can no longer tour the cave, due to a threat of a devastating fungus spread by people, to hibernating white-nosed bats. While I can understand and applaud that the... More

We really enjoyed seeing the area outside Dunbar Cave- it is peaceful and beautiful. Unfortunately the cave itself is closed due to a bat disease, so that was disappointing

A nice break from town and very close by. The cave was cool even tho we couldnt go inside. Well maintained walking/running trails through the small, heavily wooded park and around the pond.
