Mammoth Cave Offers Free Tours on Veterans Day

Mammoth Cave National Park will offer free Mammoth Passage cave tours on Sunday, November 11 in honor of Veterans Day. Tours will depart from the visitor center at 10 am, noon, 2:30 pm and 3:00 pm (Central Time).

Cave tour participants must pick up a free ticket in the visitor center before going on a tour. The ¾-mile, 1¼-hour Mammoth Passage tour is limited to 70 people, and requires a walk down and up a steep path to the Historic Entrance and 160 steps. The tour visits the Rotunda, one of the largest rooms within the cave, explores a vast canyon passageway, and discusses a 19th-century saltpeter mining operation and the geologic origins of Mammoth Cave.

Each year the National Park Service offers several fee free days to provide the opportunity for the public to visit a new place or return to an old favorite, especially one of the national parks that normally charge a fee.
