Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail follows an old rail corridor of the Mammoth Cave Railroad, which carried passengers until the early 1900s from Glasgow Junction (now Park City) to Mammoth Cave. The rail also hauled mail and other necessary supplies for the area's citizens. You can still see Engine No. 4, the only complete dummy engine of five remaining in the United States, on display in the park.

The trail is relatively flat with a few steep hills and travels through a dense forest canopy between the hotel in the park and the junction of SR 70 and SR 255. From here south, the trail is more open as it winds its way toward Park City. Along the way you'll pass Diamond Caverns.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at both ends of the trail and at several spots in between. The multiple access points/parking areas allow visitors to choose to ride/hike a section of the trail, or the entire length.


Nice easy trail except for a couple of steep areas

Rode most of the trail yesterday. It's still a bit stark since the leaves haven't popped yet. Nice trail but much of it is parallel to the main road and not much into the wilderness. read more
