This trail is so amazing! It is well maintained and was easy walk. There are some stairs to go up and down, but the climb was not hard. The entire area smelled so wonderfully good! (If you like cedar) the sink hole is pretty cool to see, and my kids enjoyed this hike thoroughly!

This is a fairly easy trail, mostly flat and have well paved ways. There are stairs at some places. It offers great views of sink holes. We also found some interesting looking spiders and other insects on our way.

Another great trail to walk, a little challenging but worth the effort, bring lots of water and enjoy a leisure hike

This is about a 2-hour hike that takes you through reforested areas that was once farmland, down a steep grade to a large sink hole where a stream surfaces, runs a few hundred yards and then sinks again. The topography is rough but forested with beautiful native trees. One of the best times of the year here is spring when... More

This is one of four hikes my friend and I did at Mammoth Cave. It was an enjoyable trail that was between easy and moderate difficulty. It is fun going down into the sink hole and getting that perspective of the landscape of the region. If you are use to hiking in the West, then it is less impressive than... More

One of the best hikes we found in Mammoth Cave National Park! A bit strenuous, but the sights are amazing. My 6 year old handled it well. Best part - it's free!

My friends and I hiked this trail before any other trails in the park and we discovered that it is a great scenery trail with water views and sinkholes.

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.
