A trail that is hidden in plain sight.

Description

This hidden gem gets overlooked by many park visitors because it is a bit longer (at just over eight miles, one way) and there just isn't a good way to loop it. That aside, it has some rolling hills and easy flats to cruise along on.

If you are looking for an easy ride, a good option is to start in Cave City and ride up to the Mammoth Cave National Park Visitor Center where you can refill a water bottle, catch your breath from all that uphill, and then turn and ride back to your car.
