Getting Around

Mammoth Cave National Park's diverse landscape is accessed by a network of parkways, roads, and river crossings. Normally, visitors have no difficulty making their way around the park, but occasionally weather conditions or construction may block roads or prevent ferries from running. Check the links on this page for road and trail closures or ferry updates if you have concerns about your planned route, or select the link at right to obtain park maps.
