wildflowers are always great here, going into the caves is a big no no.

I recommend going off trail and crawling through the caves. Free passage into mammoth cave.

Beautiful area. lots of steps but not really hard, maybe moderate. There is a side trail at the bottom which I highly recommend you take to see the large overhangs.

This was a fairly easy hike until the stairs. The sink area is interesting, but if you don't have a lot of time, I recommend sticking to the hikes in Mammoth Cave near the visitor's center. I enjoyed them a lot more.

Short but beautiful. The trail descends, then there are a lot of stairs that make this easier trail a little bit more challenging, but you can stop and take in your surroundings, then continue.

The trail is short, but deep. If I were teaching geography, I'd love to take my students on this trail!

I was not expecting what I found at the end of the trail, it's unreal! One word though, stairs!

Much better than I thought it would be. Short, quick, but goes down into the sink area. I particularly liked the segment of the (mostly) underground river.

This is one of the best hikes for spring wildflowers. Try and go in April and you will see many of them. It's a beautiful sight.

Better than expected and a must do if your in the area. Not too far of a hike, but entering and exiting the sink area itself has a lot of steps and would be considered moderately strenuous. Nonetheless, water-filled sinkholes, rocky cliffs, and caves make it all worthwhile, although the caves are not accessible. Well maintained trail, however exploring off the trail near the sink can be very slippery especially if the ground is damp.

Another great hidden gem of the park. Easy enjoyable hike.

My husband and three kids (9, 12, & 13) had a great time hiking this trail. The views are spectacular down at the bottom and there were lots of rocks to climb on. Great time. Once you are down to the bottom, there are some more primitive trails to check out.

This trail is beautiful! It's located in a large sink hole and there are spectacular views. It is heavily wooded and there are many opportunities for plant and wildlife sightings. If you have time for only one above-ground trail at Mammoth Cave, make it this one!
