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.

Nice two mile “tune up” trail. 200ish feet of elevation change.

Trail gets muddy and slick when wet.

The “Cave” isn’t much to look at.

It was super beautiful with the snow. Easy little trail that's enjoyable for your family and dogs.
I want to come back and run the trail.

I enjoyed learning about how the outside of the cave was once a dance floor. It was a cool area to explore. I'm anxious to go back and walk it with my dog. Or try trial running!

beautiful trail, cave is only open may to September so we just did the recover trail. I would not want to trail run it, alot of bigger lose rocks and step downs. A beautiful walk with turtles and ducks

Nice walk
Found a rock from the Clarksville rock Facebook page

Laid back less trafficked than you would expect . Nice easy walks with descent scenery.

Great beginner trail!

The cave area was really cool in temperature and for viewing. Loud construction going on at the lake.

Moderate hike with some elevation at first. Nice hike if you don't mind all the people and the nearby road noise. The cave area is interesting.

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.

A good trail. The cave isn't extensive, but it's still cool. Not exactly a place to get away from the world

My personal favorite trail in Clarksville. While it is often times busy and the gates close at sundown, it is possibly the best trail to run on that's somewhat challenging around here. There are two loops both of which connect in the middle. They are not paved and not made for bikes. The short loop is easy and less than a mile long. The recovery loop is about a mile and a half and has much higher incline with no switch backs. The cave is not always open, but offers a cool area to rest after your run.
