This trail is nearly across from Mammoth Cave Horse Camp and is the most popular trail for riders from this park. Also heavily used by nearby stables. Trail descends to Wet Prong of Buffalo Creek and connects to other trails in the park.

Made fer a decent switchback at times and acted as a great connecting trail..

Horrible trail!!! Made impassible by horse traffic, mud everywhere even though it had not rained in a very long time. We had one hiker sink into the mud up to his waist! If you aren't a horseback rider avoid this trail at all costs.

Great for horses, not so much for hikers. Trail is a trampled muddy mess. Encounterd several groups on horseback.

Trail muddy in places. Creek views and crossings are great and a refreshing place for horses to drink. On horseback.
