A pleasant hike or bike, with wildflowers in spring, that can be modified to fit your needs.

This loop trail in Mammoth Cave National Park combines a north and south loop, which are 5.3 miles and 3.7 miles, respectively. The south loop is a bit more challenging than the north loop. The trail is open to hikers, trail runners, and mountain bikers.

To start out on the north loop, take the Maple Springs Connector from the parking lot. A trail map can be found here.
