Come out and join us for a 10 to 12 mile hike in Mammoth Cave National Park. We'll hike a loop from Maple Springs Parking Lot starting out on the Sal Hollow trail, and then either head back on Good Springs to the Church or the Buffalo Trail.  If people are feeling adventurous after 8.1 miles, we can take a side trip to The Bluffs on the West end of Good Springs Loop before heading back to the Church.

Meeting time is 8:30 am at the Fairview Shopping Center In Bowling Green.  Look for a blue Jeep Liberty.

Hike Distance: 10 - 12 miles

Estimated Hike Time: 6 hours

Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

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 to Carpool/ caravan up to Mammoth Cave National Park.  For those meeting at the Park, please go to the Maple Springs parking lot.  We will try to start the hike by 9:15 AM.

Be sure to wear appropriate clothes and boots with good ankle support. Bring plenty of water and lunch.

    A beautiful day to enjoy the park and friends, glad Ed didn't have to carry me

    I plan to keep at least a 25 to 30 min pace. Would like to keep it that way so that we get out of the woods before dark.

    I'm thinking we will end up doing about 14 miles with the trip to the bluffs and the walk back to the cars from the church. If they'll keep me from having to carry you then bring them.

    Should be a nice day. I just want to stress that everyone should bring plenty water and snacks. This will be a long hike.
