I had so much fun going through the cave with my friends. The only thing that wasn't so great was that the expedition wasn't to long. I would have much rather seen more of the caves instead of the guide speaking about them. The guides sure do know their history and are welcome to any questions you may have.

The trail provided opportunity for a delightful and beautiful walk. Deer were plentiful, and the fall colors enhanced the views.

We did all the visitor center trails, Sand Cave and this one. This was probably out favorite, although sunset point and the Historical Entrance are worth seeing too. This trail has some nice suspended boardwalks to take you over and around the sinks. Fun but most of the National Park worthy attractions are below ground.

The trails are well marked and cared for. We took kids as young as 3 on the walk, and they did okay for the most part. There are enough options to go for a quick walk or a longer hike.

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
