Mammoth Cave National Park will offer free Mammoth Passage cave tours on Monday, August 25, in recognition of Founders Day, the founding day of the National Park Service.
“Come enjoy your national park,” said Acting Superintendent Lizzie Watts. “On August 25, 1916, Congress passed the Organic Act, which established the National Park Service I hope many of our friends and neighbors will help us celebrate by attending one of these free tours.”
The free Mammoth Passage tours will depart from the visitor center at the following times: 10:30, 11:00, 12:00, 12:30, 1:00, 2:00, and 3:30. Participants need to pick up a free ticket in the visitor center before going on the tour. The ¾-mile, 1¼ hours Mammoth Passage tour is limited to 40 people, and requires a walk down and up the steep hill below the visitor center, as well as 160 steps.
