This loop consists of numerous trails, and it offers a nice tour of Mammoth Cave's surface features, which include Mammoth Dome sink, two large springs (outflows for cave water), and Green River views. Starts at the Visitor Center, so nice hike to take while you are waiting for a cave tour.

Not great, a lot of climbing for no views of the river. Eco springs trail was more enjoyable.

I hiked this trail 4/22/17 on my way back to IN. Well marked, nice inclines. The view from the scenic outlook was amazing. It was raining when I was there so everything was a vibrant green. Definitely worth the detour off of 65N.

This trail is pretty nice- I showed up around 9 am to try and beat the trail traffic and was mostly successful. Beautiful trail for a jog but you'll be tempted to stop to take it in quite often.

Great trail with nice views of the green river. Great for elevation gains.

Great Trail! Hiked it in January and there were many great views I couldn't have seen if there had been leaves on the trees. Make sure you look at Dixon Cave when you're hiking it! Later in the trail, you'll see more and more of the river. Would heartily recommend to anyone in the park!
