Hiking Mammoth Cave National Park
This is the Mammoth Cave National Park entry in the extensive Falcon Guides series. When looking for a hiking guide book of a park, we generally look for the Falcon Guide first. With few exceptions, they are very good at what they do, and we like to have a consistent format to get used to. Unlike most Falcon Guides, this is also a comprehensive guide to the park, along with covering the hiking trails. We own and recommend this book.
Mammoth Cave and the Kentucky Cave Region
This book is part of the Images of America series. This particular one covers both the park and the surrounding cave areas. It contains history and stories, along with a large number of historical photographs.
Mammoth Cave: The Story Behind the Scenery
This is the Mammoth Cave National Park edition of the very common "The Story Behind the Scenery" series. These books are very commonly found in the visitor centers and gift shops of the parks. They are short, but they provide good photos and general information on the park itself.
