Dunbar Cave State Park is located 60 minutes northwest of Nashville and about one and a half miles northeast of downtown Clarksville in Montgomery County. Dunbar Cave is the most prominent of several caves located in this designated natural area. In the roomy mouth of the cave, square dances, radio shows, and big band era concerts were once held.

This is a decent place to take family or visitors to Clarksville to see a neat geologic feature without the drive up to Mammoth Cave. Overall the trail itself is not very interesting through the woods and usually pretty trafficked. Good for playing Pokémon Go, though!

I enjoyed this trail a lot. It's long enough to get a great workout in and very well shaded from the sun!

Great starter route.

I enjoy walking this moderate level trail. I like the versatility. I can either speed walk, using it as a great exercise, or take my time, and enjoy the views and nature sounds. ☺

Trail was clearly marked. Pretty easy. I did it with my 4 year old and we had a blast. It was the perfect length for us

Nice trails and the cave is open for tours I believe from May 1-August 31st. But you have to book your tour a week in advance.
