Long Description:
Cedar Sink
Distance: 1.6 miles round trip
Location: Located on Cedar Sink Rd/Highway 422, about .6 miles from highway 70, 3.2 miles north of the intersection with the visitor center road

The Cedar Sink Trail leads down hill through second growth forest, past several sinking streams and abundant wildflowers in the spring. At the end of the trail you can view Cedar Sink from a platform or descend down into this enormous sinkhole, where, in times of adequate rainfall, water emerges as a spring from one cave system and a few hundred feet later sinks into another cave. The large sinkhole shows clearly the layers of sandstone and limestone and provides an excellent opportunity to discuss karst geology.
