Mammoth Cave - Good Spring Trail to the Bluffs Campsite

Come out and join us for a trip to enjoy a hike in Mammoth Cave National Park. We'll hike to the bluffs campsite on the Good Spring Trail and then head back.

Meeting time is 9:00 am Fairview Shopping Center.(9:45 at Good Springs Church Trailhead)

Hike Distance: about 6 miles round trip to Bluffs and back.  Those who want to can go a few miles more miles by making a loop via Collie Ridge and then back on Dry Prong Trail to the Church.

Estimated Hike Time: 4 hours

Difficulty: moderate

Well behaved dogs are welcome - Mammoth Cave has a strict leash law.

People traveling from Bowling Green can meet up in the Fairview Shopping Center Parking lot at 9 AM to Carpool/ caravan up to Mammoth Cave National Park. At 9:45AM, we will head out from the Good Spring Church parking lot and start hiking the trail to the bluffs campsite. We'll stop at the Bluffs Campsite to enjoy the view and have some lunch. Be sure to wear appropriate clothes and boots with good ankle support. Bring plenty of water and lunch. If you are traveling directly to the park (i.e., not coming to Fairview Plaza to carpool) let Steven know not to wait for you at the plaza. If you are going straight to the trail head, drive north on Green River Ferry Road over the river and proceed 3.4 miles and take a left on Maple Springs Road. Travel 1 mile to the Maple Spring parking lot and continue past it and take a left on the gravel road that goes to Good Spring Church. See the link below for a map of the park.

    I plan to hike a longer loop, so those that do not want to hike as far will be able to follow the good springs trail back to the church. The additional section I plan to do will make the hike about 10 to 11 miles.

      I was planning to do McCoy hollow to the creek and back Sunday. That would be a 10 to 12 mile hike.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
