This is a good walk through the woods with some grades. It is very quiet after the midday rush of visitors to Mammoth Caves, and you can walk it in the late afternoon without seeing another person. It can be very refreshing as you pass...More

This is a beautiful walk through the woods to a very large sink hole. Fairly easy hike but it does have some stairs. It is nicely shaded. Well worth the hike. Even my teenagers thought it was pretty neat!

This was a pretty short hike but we felt it was well worth it (the kids might disagree though lol) My wife and I really loved the view once we got there, it's pretty impressive once you're right down in there! We forgot to put...More

We took our whole family on this hike and enjoyed it. It was a great way to spend some time in between our cave tours.

Above ground at Mammoth Cave National Park. The land is so pocked with caves, sink holes and cliffs and Cedar Sink is a bit of it all. Good paths, well marked and observation platforms.

If you come to Mammoth caves and want to do so hiking make sure to check this one out. It's different from the trails. There are stairs, but not to bad. I recommend going straight when you come to the loop.

Very short hike over a somewhat rough trail to a sink which shows how the water moves underground and into the cave. Interesting but not a big deal.
