“A widely used trail to access the Mammoth Cave backcountry.”— Clinton Lewis
As with all trails at Mammoth Cave, this is a multi-use trail, shared with horses and other runners/hikers. Watch for horse manure.
The singletrack leg of the trail is not as heavily used, and that's a shame since it is the most fun. Around the 3-mile mark, be careful of the climb from the creekbed. Due to horse use, it is really sloppy and challenging. The trail continues uphill to the intersection of the Collie Ridge and Wet Prong Trail. There is also a connector trail to the Collie Ridge Campsite.
