One of the best hikes in Mammoth Cave National Park, Cedar Spring Trail showcases several sunken in pools of water surrounded by massive cliffs and a forest of trees.

Starting at the parking lot off of National Park Boundary Road, you will follow the marked sign on the path until you hit a set of metal stairs heading downward. Take the stairs to the bottom and take the first left on the trail to the observation deck that overlooks the Cedar Spring.

A map of the park is available here.

Hidden Awesomeness!

We have been all around Mammoth. We have kayaked, hiked, explored and visited so many times. However, we have somehow missed Cedar Sink. We loved it!
