Sparky LOVES hiking the trails at Mammoth Cave National Park. Don't worry, the Mammoth Cave Tour is on the agenda for the next day or so. There's only one cave tour available right now, and it's self-guided. So Sparky is exploring all the trails but one on the ranger map sheet guide, there are 11 trails listed.
The Turnhole Bend Trail- 0.5 mile loop trail. Listed as moderate because of a few stairs. Sparky would say this trail is more towards the easy side than moderate. Two sinkhole views and a pretty overlook of one of the largest springs of the Green River. You access this trail along Brownsville Road, before you get to the visitors center at the park.

The forest floor is currently (April 21, 2021) carpeted with lots of different wildflowers-purple phlox, purple phacelia, daisies, fire pinks, Larkspur (deep purple) and lots of Jacob's Ladder.
