This trail that takes you pass two springs and to the banks of the Styx river before returning to the trail. The trail is heavily wooded and a moderate incline. It connects the River Styx Trail to the Mammoth Dome Sink Trail.

Peaceful, moderately hiked. The stairs at the last .8 were more moderate than easy. daffodils bloomed. Saw a few deer and squirrels.

Nice trail to do while waiting for your cave tour. It goes down to the river as the name suggests. It’s pretty muddy/buggy in the summer, but still really nice.

This is a very short and easy trail. The map above shows a loop but this trail is an out and back. It follows the river and is somewhat scenic but not much.

I decided to go for a hike at the hottest part of the day (noon and 92 F). The trees provided great coverage and the temperatures was actually pretty moderate. I also only encountered maybe a handful of fellow hikers, despite how crowded the parking lot was. I can probably assume that people were doing the cave tours and did not want to be outdoors like me. The trails are well maintained and it would make a great running trail!

Very accessible trail, felt like a light to moderate difficulty. Gravel all through and boardwalks over any difficult terrain, which it seems is to be expected on heavily trafficked national park trails. This time of year the woods are filled with beautiful yellow daffodils. What I liked most about this trail was knowing I was hiking right above a huge cave. There were several entrance points and a sink hole that were very interesting! Also, Sunset Point is just a short aside from the main trail and is a beautiful overlook of the park.

A pretty mostly wooded trail by the Green River that takes you out to the southern end of the Mammoth Cave NP Visitor Center trail system.

Very easy hike with nice views. Deer will get fairly close to you and pose for pictures. A park ranger told me that it was because some people feed them.

Easy hike and an introduction to what Mammoth Cave has to offer. Surprisingly little traffic for the location at the times I've gone.

pleasant walk through the woods. Not a destination, but worth a peak.
