The masses have spoken - no hiking on the first day of college football. We'll try again to hit Good Spring Loop later in the fall.
Come out and join us for BGHM's first trip to Mammoth Cave's Good Spring Loop
Meeting time: POSTPONED (9 AM)
Hike Distance: 7.9 miles
Estimated Hike Time: 4 hours
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 9AM to Carpool/ caravan up to Mammoth Cave National Park.
At 10AM, we will meet up at the parking lot and start hiking the Good Spring Loop. Be sure to wear appropriate cloths 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 me know not to wait for you at the plaza.
From the book I have on hiking Mammoth Cave (the Falcon Guide by Johnny Molloy), it sounds like we can drive to Good spring church where the trailhead is. Drive north on Green River Ferry Road over the river and proceed 3.4 miles to Maple Springs Road (its a left). 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.
