Mammoth Cave still assessing flood damage

MAMMOTH CAVE NATIONAL PARK, Ky. (AP) - Some parts of Mammoth
Cave National Park are back to normal following the flooding there
earlier this month.

But Superintendent Patrick Reed says the park needs more time to
have Houchin Ferry running again. And Houchin Ferry Campground
still needs work.

Staff members are still assessing damage at the park and making
repairs as they can.

All cave tours are operating on regular schedules and
traditional routes. The canoe launch and picnic area are open at
Dennison Ferry Day-Use Area, and Joppa Ridge Road is open.

The park says in a news release that park trails on both sides
of Green River were affected, but Cedar Sink is the only trail
that's closed. Officials advise visitors to use extra caution in
areas where trails may be blocked or eroded.
