Leading to the cave, the scenery on this trail is especially charming. Verdant woodland glows in the sunlight. As you pass through groves on your way to the main attraction, look out for wild flowers and note the presence of butterflies and seasonal birdlife. At the entrance to the tunnel, you can still see marks made by Confederate soldiers.
This well maintained trail is one of the most thrilling in the park. The experience of remaining inside the echoing chamber as a train whizzes through is dizzying and almost surreal. It's one of the most unique hikes you are ever likely to complete.
Bring your family to this sun dappled trail, which culminates at a historic log cabin. Following a burbling creek for much of the route, there are plenty of stopping off points where you can wade into the water to cool off and appreciate the serenity of the park.
