Mammoth Cave trail maps

Purchase trail map from AmazonPurchase trail map from AmazonThe 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.

Mammoth Cave trail mapThe Mammoth Cave trail map (1.4 mb) shows the park’s extensive network of backcountry trails, along with mileages between junctions, backcountry campsites, and other points of interest.

Mammoth Cave east trail mapThis east Mammoth Cave trail map (250 kb) shows the rest of the park missing from the previous map. This is the section labeled “map on reverse side” on the previous map key.

Mammoth Cave National Park backcountry mapThis 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 This one is easier to read but has outdated trail routes that are no longer accurate, so do not use this map to navigate.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
