Beautiful country, well maintained, lots of trails both hiking and biking.
Big Hollow Trail. This trail is 11.7 miles but I did the bottom loop twice and came out at 12.7 miles. There are opportunities on the trail to shortcut it back. The trail is generally flat with few variations in steepness. Great trail for mountain biking or just someone who wants an easy hike in the woods. Not too much for scenery as I said the trail is flat.
great scenery as i drove through the park at one place i rode a ferry across the river lots of trails in this area to bike or hike. overall a good drive.
Very scenic drive through the park. Did this several years back. Beautiful area!
Mammoth Cave is a great place. I'll be back.
We did about 6 miles of the trail while waiting to tour the cave, it was absolutely gorgeous and such clean air.
Not bad at all. Worth the trip again and again. Trails are well kept and the caves are worth the going on the tour. If you get chilled easy bring a very light jacket.
I will call it a nature drive. Even in the winter it was nice.
Scenery most of the way.
Beautiful and scenic trails, but the real attraction is underground. We took the domes and dripstones tour which is not for anyone that is claustrophobic. The initial descent is 200+ stairs that are extremely narrow in spots. A great contrast to this area of the cave is the historic entrance area. The historic entrance truly lives up the name mammoth cave and should not be missed.
Keep in mind the cave temperature is usually around 60 degrees so you'll want to be sure to bring a jacket even in summer.
Scenic winding country roads.
A great 'trail' for my handicapped son. Plenty of wildlife, and different wilderness to keep him entertained and able to enjoy a bit of nature.
Mammoth cave national park and surrounding area along the scenic drive is replete with recreational activities, beautiful country. You can easily spend more than week in the area.
