Welcome to Park City Kentucky Cave Country
Long before the establishment of Mammoth Cave National Park, the town of Glasgow Junction (Park City) cooperated with the private owners of Mammoth Cave, Diamond and other caves in the area to share the cave region with travelers. They were all connected by mutual financial interest, family relationships, community, and in 1886 a spur line, the Mammoth Cave Railroad was created. The current nine mile Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail celebrates that legacy of cooperation and hospitality between Mammoth Cave and Park City.
In addition to the Railroad Hike & Bike Trail, Mammoth Cave National Park offers several opportunities for bicyclists to get out into the outdoors. Street bicycles are permitted on all paved Park roads that are open to the public, mountain bikes are permitted on the unpaved administrative roads. In addition, certain trails have been specifically designated for off-road bicycle use, and more are now under development.
Several years ago, the Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Cabinet’s Ofﬁce for Adventure Tourism created the Cross Kentucky Master Trail Plan for non-motorized trails. The idea is to be able to travel across the entire state of Kentucky on foot, by bicycle, or by horseback. In the Master Trail Plan, Park City was designated a part of the "Kentucky Caves Trail". A 70-mile trail was designed, beginning at Barren River Lake State Resort Park, through Park City, Mammoth Cave National Park, to Nolin River Lake and ending at Rough River Dam State Resort Park.
