We took our whole family on this hike and enjoyed it. It was a great way to spend some time in between our cave tours.

Above ground at Mammoth Cave National Park. The land is so pocked with caves, sink holes and cliffs and Cedar Sink is a bit of it all. Good paths, well marked and observation platforms.

It was a nice hike over somewhat of a rough trail but one that we could do with a young kid and a dog. There are a bunch of stairs towards the end (leading to the sinkhole) which could be avoided if one took the...More

If you come to Mammoth caves and want to do so hiking make sure to check this one out. It's different from the trails. There are stairs, but not to bad. I recommend going straight when you come to the loop.

Very short hike over a somewhat rough trail to a sink which shows how the water moves underground and into the cave. Interesting but not a big deal.

My husband & I hiked a handful of trails but I do know this was one of them. Great time, was a little hot that day - bring water! Great things to explore on your own. The trail was not rugged, pretty easy.

Too bad one if the busiest travel months is when construction was going on for two of the three trails we wanted to hike. The mosquitos were nasty too. Take lots of repellent and wear good sturdy shoes.

My grandkids and I did a lot of hiking as well as cave tours and they loved it~ This one had unique/unusual sites to see. Take bottled water if you do this in the summer as it got quite warm.

We spent about 2 hours hiking this trail, but didn't make it to the end so I think we missed some nice scenery. There were plenty of stairs to walk up/down. Overall the path was clear and we enjoyed the view. Lots of tree toads...More

A nice walk in the woods with lots of steps up and down. Some of the steps were metal. We counted the longest one at 117 steps going up to the trail. There is no way to avoid the steps. Saw several varieties of purple...More
