Connects Visitor Center area to Echo River Spring, passing Mammoth Dome sink and White's Cave in the process. Not too steep. Part of what this site calls the Green River Bluffs Trail.

We enjoyed taking this trail back up to the Heritage Trail and the Mammoth Cave NP Visitor Center from the Green River and the southern section of the trail system. It passed right by the Mammoth Dome Sink...interesting to think what is directly below.

Beautiful trail. Easy to moderate hike. The whole trail system at Mammoth Cave is fantastic, but this was my favorite trail so far.

A very neat point to point trail going from up on surface down to the river. The area near the Visitor's Center has very pleasant views of moss covered boulders and a quick spur to the Mammoth Dome Sinkhole. There are likely other unnamed sinkholes in the area.
