Come on now! If you don’t know the significance of this place gtfoh!!! If you’re into spelunking of course it is your Mecca! Pretty easy jaunt! Keep kids and pets in check though since it’s kind of a scared spot for some of us!

Such an interesting place! If your at MCNP why not! You know it’s the only naturally occurring pond in the region of the cave!!!

Awesome trail. Very beautiful scenery. Lots of wildlife. An outstanding 1 hour hike

nice beginner trail. easy up and down. overlook at top was nice.

Loved this hike! We cobbled together the Sunset Point, River Styx Spring, and Green River Bluff trails to create a good loop. This trail has some good inclines and great overlooks of Sunset Point, the River Styx Spring, and the Green River. Also took a short detour to Dixon Cave. Saw a few deer as well.

nice trail with beautiful views. Close to the visitor center

Fun trail. Offers different options of you want to take shortcuts. Very wooded hike (wear your bug spray). Fun addition to a Mammoth Cave tour.

We enjoyed this hike with our 10 and 8 year old plus pup. Had some pretty views in the .5 loop and we walked down the the sink hole ground at one point. We wore bug spray and were fine. Took about 1 hour to hike but nice family morning hike!!

Easy hike.

Great trail for kids, the elderly and for handicapped people.

great views and so quite please, I love it, I will come back again for sure...!

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.

We accessed this one from the Echo River Trail. It's easy and well maintained.

We accessed this one from the Echo River trail. It's a connector trail and it's easy just like all the rest.

I really don't know how to rate the hike. I wasn't impressed with the view. It's basically downhill going and uphill coming back. However, it's not too difficult. My son and I went counter clockwise at the loop and we had to climb the metal steps so if you don't like climbing a few steps at one time, do the loop clockwise and you should do better.

Very scenic, well marked and maintained. Not too strenuous. Challenging, but not intimidating. Did the Violet City Cave tour in the afternoon!!! Great Day!

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!

This whole area is absolutely beautiful!

Very pretty! Easy hike, very peaceful. Only encountered a couple other people the day I went.

pretty trail, very maintained, very easy.

Trail was in good condition. Several benches along the way if you need to rest, as well as overlooks with nicely constructed decks and walkways.

Trail in very good condition, trees provide ample shad and some nice views of the green river. Elevation changes pretty easy to manage.

Very unique trail!

Great variety of wildflowers

Just meh.

The overlook at the river is beautiful, The rest of the trail is dull and you never get out of earshot of the road noise. It says this is a good spot to see eagles, no luck for us today though.
