Nice area to explore

cave is cool, good place to visit since clarksville doesn't have much. Hike is decent, pretty short so not really a place to workout but its fun to walk around.

We have hiked the two trails in the fall and winter. Only 1.9 and 1 miles but very pleasant and close to our lodging. Have seen deer up close on both occasions. They are not scared off.

This is a location that has a history, a present, and a future. The history includes dances in the cave to the music of Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, and other famous orchestras. Although those cannot be heard today other than on your CD player, the cave is a very interesting place to explore. The area outside the cave features Swan... More

Dunbar Cave is a history lesson in itself. We went for a hike. Very safe. We try to make it by each time we are in the area.

Enjoy the beautiful park and very well maintained hiking trail. The cave is right on the lake, pretty cool to see. The best part of this park is walking the beautiful trails and seeing the leaves changing colors!

The trails are clearly marked, but watch out for roots and rocks and other bits of nature that could cause one to trip. I've seen people run the trails, but I'm too clumsy. We like the idea that this spot feels like an oasis from the city. It's a great place for a nature walk.
