Trail Overview

Ugly Creek Road is a 3.5-mile one-way trail that is located within Mammoth Cave National Park. The trail begins off Green River Ferry Road (1352) and ends on Dennison Ferry Road. The trail can be run in either direction; however, there is a possible impassable water crossing closer to the Green River Ferry Road side if the water is covering the road. After heavy storms there is a possible chance of water covering the road, the park service does not recommend crossing due to the swift possible currents and the slick concrete dam you will be driving across. Since this trail is entirely within the park boundary be sure to check nps.gov/maca before going for any closures or alerts.

Difficulty

The trail is maintained by the park service; however, there are a few steep washed-out sections when winding down and out of Ugly Creek. It is not recommended to cross Ugly Creek if water is covering the concrete dam.
