Nice boardwalk and concert walkway shot and sweet

Me and my girlfriend walked 5.5 miles total, after checking out everything. There were several ways to go back but we took the WHOLE trail. We had our dog with us and it was a bit challenging at times but overall the perfect hiking experience. River views, breathtaking hills and incredible view points. I would definitely recommend and go again.

A great way to kill time if you are waiting around for your ranger guided tour.

Trail was relatively well marked, very well-defined so it was near impossible to wander off trail. Nice elevation changes, trail system was super clean. This was our alternate plan, as we couldn’t hike our originally planned route because the ferry was not running.

Nice family trail for hitting the classics at the Mammoth Cave park. The Heritage trail starts with a nice boardwalk and view of the lower area, then after a nice overlook and a steep descent you come to the River Styx spring. The spring is an interesting formation, but on our particular day it was relatively dry and muddy. The ascent on the River Styx trail is very smooth and easy, and you get a nice surprise blast of cool air when you get near one of the cave entrances near the top.

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