Mammoth Cave trail maps
The free maps below shows trails and mileages in more detail than the park map above. However, they don’t show topographic lines, so I wouldn’t want to use them for long hiking or backpacking trips since they won’t be as useful for navigation. Instead, you’ll want the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map, which has enough detail and information to be suitable for overnight travel and backpacking.
This is the older Mammoth Cave backcountry map (600 kb), replaced by the ones above. This one is easier to read but has outdated trail routes that are no longer accurate, so do not use this map to navigate.
Mammoth Cave campground map
This is a map of Mammoth Cave Campground, located near the visitor center and Mammoth Cave Hotel. Click the image to view a full size GIF (80 kb) or download the PDF (400 kb).
Mammoth Cave lodging map
Click the image to the right to view a Hotels.com interactive Mammoth Cave lodging map in a new window, centered on Cave City. Although Cave City is the most popular place to stay outside the park, if you zoom out and scroll the map you can find other locations as well. You can also top-rated Mammoth Cave lodging on Expedia (or Hotels.com) to compare reviews, photos, and prices.
