Beatiful view over the valley especially great for sunset because it sets over the water.

This small hike is inside of the Mammoth Cave National Park is well know and provides a great place for small kids and is handicap accessible. The pathway itself is a flat boardwalk and is only about .3 of a mile. It features beautiful views of the mountains and lots of wildlife. The hike is also part of a larger system of trails that runs all over the park so if you are looking for something a bit longer than you can follow the signs and continue hiking. There is plenty of parking around since the lodge is right next door to the trail head, however if it is right at sunset it can get pretty crowded so you might want to get there a bit earlier than sunset to get a spot.
