  • Stop 5 - Lover's Leap

    Lover's Leap in Gothic Avenue is 175 feet beneath your feet. The popular name usually refers to high cliffs where broken-hearted lovers can leap to their deaths, but the ten-foot jump from the Lover's Leap in Mammoth Cave would likely just break a leg.


    Lover's Leap is one of the cave's oldest named landmarks - the name goes back to 1827.
