Overlooks

 

Unlike some of the national parks in the western United States such as, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, or Rocky Mountain, the topography and dense tree cover on Mammoth Cave limits the grand vistas in the park. However, there are several viewpoints located along trails and roadways to take in the vistas of the river valleys and hillsides. Explore some of the parks most popular viewpoints and overlooks below.
