(Continued)

GLASGOW —

It's a great thing,” he said. “A lot of people use it. A lot of citizens in Park City use it.”

Inside Mammoth Cave National Park, the trail follows the remaining portions of the old berm of the Mammoth Cave Railroad. There are six entry points so that hikers and bicyclists may choose to cover the entire 10-mile length of the trail, the press release stated.

It's like putting history back together,” said Bruce Powell, acting superintendent for Mammoth Cave National Park in the press release. “Park City and Mammoth Cave share a common history related to the Mammoth Cave Railroad, which operated between the two entities from 1886 to 1931. Now a recreational trail will tell its story.”

Also on Saturday, tours of the Mentz Hotel, BRIMS' new home, will be available.

“There's been an interest from the public of wanting to come in and see what it looks like on the inside,” said Liz Thomas-Hook, executive director of BRIMS.

The historic hotel is being renovated to accommodate the museum.
