Mammoth Cave Mountain Bike

  • Location: Mammoth Cave, KY
  • Time: All Day

Rush through the forest inside Mammoth Cave National Park on 9.1 miles of mountain bike trails. Test your skills over multiple log rides along the trail on one of the most beginner friendly mountain bike trails in south-central Kentucky!  The Big Hollow trail features a north and south loop that careens in and out of hollows under a tree canopy keeping you cool in the autumn heat.  We’ll take it slow so you have the chance to learn new skills and take in all of the fall colors that are sure to start creeping out by the beginning of October.

ORAC will take care of all of the transportation, bikes, helmets, and expertise.  All you need to worry about is bringing the right clothes, and some snacks for the trail.  New to mountain biking, don’t sweat it, this trail is very beginner friendly and will inspire confidence across all ability levels.
