People traveling from Bowling Green can meet up in the Fairview Shopping Center Parking lot at 10AM to Carpool/ caravan up to Mammoth Cave National Park. At 10:45AM, 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.
