Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky
The 8-mile Big Hollow Trail highlights the above-ground treasures of Mammoth Cave, winding through gorgeous rock outcroppings and stream crossings. The trail was designed for the entire family, with subtle grades, an open corridor and a few more challenging alternate lines for the adventurous. Adjacent to the new trail is the Maple Springs Campground, adding additional value and opportunity for visitors to the park.
In a unique twist, the Southwest Kentucky Mountain Bike Association signed an agreement with Mammoth Cave to be the official caretaker group of the trail, taking pressure off a park with neither the manpower nor resources to care for all of its trails.
