Mammoth Cave NP is shaped in many ways be the Green River. The easiest way to see is simply the way the river bifurcates the park into two nearly identical halves. I will say most of the park's attractions, like nearly all the cave entrances and many of the most popular trails, are on the SE side closest to Park City and Cave City. However, you can cross the river by ferry to hike several trails on the other side.

The Green River is so aptly named as it is the greenish freshwater I have ever seen.
The best way to view it is the trails around the natural cave entrance. These trails will take you down for great views of the river, but also an important tributary, the Styx River from the Cave.

Another way this water shapes the park is the underground water that has shaped the actual cave passage ways. Today the cave is still being cut by that river with tours of the underground Styx River. The Styx River emerges on the hillside from a cave and flows a short distance to the Green. Take the River Styx Spring trail from the natural entrance and you will quickly arrive at the River Styx emergence as well as the banks of the Green River. Here we enjoyed seeing the river and taking some pictures.

Again not everything is below the ground here. If you complete your cave tour by the natural entrance, take the time to walk a short distance to see the river. You will be very glad you did.

A ranger mapped out a 2.5 mile trail from the visitors center down to the Green River that took us over parts of several trails. There wErr a good deal of ups and downs but all in all quite nice and trails well kept. I’d like to come back in the fall when I suspect the foliage would be beautiful.

When visiting Mammoth Cave National Park, make sure to take hikes and see awesome views of Green River! If you start at the Visitor Center, just stroll to the Historic Entrance and then keep on strolling right on down to the banks of the Green River. Then, you can hike the Green River Bluff Trail back to the Visitor Center. It was quite an uphill trek! But the overlooks were worth it! About half way back, you can detour to Dixon Cave which hosts the Indiana Bat.

Also, you can drive to the Green River Ferry and park in the parking lot to get another view of the Green River. The ferry was not operational when I visited, but it would be quite an adventure to use it. You can leave your car, and hike along the Echo River to the Echo River Spring and then to River Styx. The first part of this trail is flat and accessible.

And for another adventure, drive to Turnhole Bend Nature Center and hike to the overlooks where you can see the Turnhole Spring where an underground river meets the Green River. Ships used to turn around in this section of Green River, and thus its name.

Other hikes on the north side of Green River offer views of this waterway, too.

Nice area to hike to. It's interesting to think that riverboats used to bring people to the cave on the river. It doesn't seem big enough, at least in the areas I was at. It was a hot and humid day and the bugs where pretty active while I was down there, so bug spray is highly recommended.

We hiked down to the Green River after our cave tours. This was a fun way to spend a couple hours. Hike was easy going toward the river and moderate coming out.

Its hard to believe the river carved out Mammoth Cave, but the water that flows through it comes from the Green River. Not a hard or long hike down to the waters edge at all.

The family hiked to the Green River while at Mammoth Cave. It was a perfect hike and we got to get an idea of how people traveled by steamboat to the cave. There is nothing to see (no dock), but there is a sign explaining everything.

We rented from Mammoth Cave Canoe & Kayak, they were excellent. Very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable. They drop you off and let you go at your own pace. Would highly recommend. The green river itself was quite brown, from all the mud and clay in the soil. It was clean - just muddy. However , kayaking into a cave was an awesome unique experience.

This was a nice hike in the woods and along the river. Not too strenuous, although quite a few areas of uphill stepping. The trail has a clear path with markers at trail intersections.

The Green River flows through the park that is Mammoth Cave. Several of the trails will take you down to the river bank. I've seen folks fishing down there as well. Echo River, which flows out of Mammoth Cave, is a tributary of the Green River, which in turns flows into the Ohio near Henderson, KY.

If you are driving through the park, you will see the river at several points. You can also take a ferry across it if the water is high enough but not too high. I have see it all three ways where the water wouldn't allow the ferry to move and where the water was so high the ferry couldn't reach the far sides on its guide wires and I've crossed it many times.

If you have never ridden a ferry, it is an experience but once is plenty unless you are not in a hurry.
