Nice and easy.....short trail but it has so many offshoots that you can exyend your hike to last several hours

Wet Prong was fun but not too challenging. I'm a very active person even without hiking so I enjoy the moderate-difficult hikes that bring a good challenge. if you take the steep walk down to the stream it was beautiful. not too many falls but just enough for a real nature lover to be glad they made the hike. I'm sure glad I did!

This trail is great and felt like a true Kentucky woods experience, even though we were only a couple miles in to the woods at any time. There's about three hours of easy hiking that you can make in to your own loop that suits your time frame. Trail conditions were good when we went, regardless of recent rainfall. Deer were not shy. Overall we really enjoyed this hike and were glad to spend a few hours exploring the woods before our cave tour.

I hiked this loop a couple of days before Christmas, so winter is in full swing. No leaves are on the trees so the views of the ridges and Green River was perfect. Started at the trailhead just off the Visitor's Center parking lot and headed down the well marked trail. The trail has many large tree roots and plenty of large rocks, but nothing too strenuous as this is one of the easier trails south of the river. Very beautiful views of the ridge lines and forest make this a very enjoyable hike down to the river. The trail has an overlook of the Green River as it turns and parallels down to the southern bank. It ends at a junction where a hiker can turn up back towards the Visitor's Center at approximately 1.9 miles. Using the Echo Springs trailhead, I passed over the River Styx overlook and hiked to the Springs before turning back and taking the Mammoth Sink trail back to the Visitor Center. Overall my hike measured approximately 4.2 miles. I recommend hiking this in the winter for the views and the solitude, as these trails are very populous during the summer tourist season.

Clean, level and great for a family hike.

Trail was well maintained for the first 3.25 miles... then became muddy. Trail is gravel all the way to the 2nd creek crossing (3.25 mil) Not much to see, 98% woods . Definitely more of a horse trail. Trail ties in with other trails around the 3.5 mile mark. Trail is very easy to follow, marked exceptionally well... if you get lost on it, you probably shouldn’t be hiking!

This is a great trail... if you’re horseback riding. Unfortunately for hikers, there are dozens of areas along the trail that the horses have turned into bogs and mud pits. The rules of the trail state that horseback riders should proceed through muddy areas, but any area where hikers have formed side trails to get around the bogs have been compromised by the horses as well. Another rule is that you should throw your horse piles 200’ off trail, but that isn’t happening either. Poop is everywhere. I can see where that rule is kind of dumb, horses poop a lot and having to dismount every few hundred yards to toss a pile would be annoying, but rules are rules and we’re in a National Park. Probably one of the most disappointing aspect of this trail is the litter: beer bottles and cans strewn throughout by, you guessed it, horseback riders. An afternoon trail ride doesn’t exclude you from the “pack it in, pack it out” rule! I know it isn’t every horse person doing this, probably just a handful are to blame, but they’re giving the good ones a bad rep. My wife is a horse person, has two Tennessee Walkers and trail rides as well, and she thought this was horrible. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have some common courtesy and some respect for not only the rules, but the natural surroundings and wildlife. Otherwise, don’t come out here. Go ride in a junk yard or something.

We hiked a number of trails in Mammoth Cave NP, and this was, hands down, our favorite. Very pretty woods, interesting things to see. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Main stairways are steep and open grate metal and could be difficult for your dog.

this trail is short and easy... but well worth it. it was overcast and the colors just popped!!!! loved it!

Campground to The River Styx Spring and back. Easy. Lots of people. Nice walk though.

Like previous reviews, this trail loops you around and joins most all the trails near the visitor center. I went around most all of them this afternoon and it came out to be about 9 miles. Outstanding views of many of the parks features and the deer will walk very close to you, Got some great pictures! Be sure to work your way to Sunset Point near sunset. Plenty of rock formations and forest to view.
