Review

15 minutes from downtown, this small park has 5 miles of intricately woven trails that provide the trail runner with the perfect pre- or post-work run. The park sits on top of a cave (its namesake) that is accessible with a permit. Sink holes, ponds, and vistas, are visible on trails throughout the park. Terrain is generally easy, on smooth, packed earth. It is also popular with mountain bikers. Due to the extensive interlacing of trails, they are often unmarked, but it is hard to get lost due to the small size of the park.
