Hike Distance: about 10miles

Estimated Hike Time: 5 hours

Difficulty: moderate (but this will be a long hike)

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

 

People traveling from Bowling Green can meet up at the Fairview Plaza to Carpool/ caravan up to Mammoth Cave National Park.  Those meeting at the park should be at Good Springs Church ready to hike by 9:45AM.

    It was a good workout for me after all the rain and cold weather. Thanks, Ed, for organizing the hike! I would never have found my way back to the car by myself after wondering 10 miles in the woods.

      If you don't know where good springs church is located then just wait at the green river ferry parking lot and you can follow us from there.
