Located in south / central Kentucky, Mammoth Cave National Park is a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve. The park spans over 52,000 acres, and lives up to its name by being home to the world’s longest known cave system, with over 400 miles explored. Along with experiencing this vast cave system on one of the many cave tours, park activities include historic sites and scenic views; hiking, biking, and horse riding on over 80 miles of trails; boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and swimming on the Green River and Nolin River; birding and wildlife viewing; as well as camping and picnicking. Of course there are also seasonal ranger-led activities and programs that range from cave activities to wildflower walks and genealogy workshops.
