Details

Elevation Gain

Route Type

Out-and-Back

Added by Lucas Bremer

This newly improved handicapped accessible trail located within Mammoth Cave National Park has something for everyone.

Bluff lines, wildlife, wildflowers, streams, and cave entrances abound on this hike in Mammoth Cave National Park. The pathway is mostly paved and has interactive exhibits and viewing platforms around the spring. 

The highlight of the trail is a “blue hole” on the edge of the Green River. Water can be seen "bubbling" up from somewhere within Mammoth Cave.

This is a great quick trail for the whole family above ground while waiting for one of the many underground tours of Mammoth Cave National Park.
