The Mammoth Cave Biosphere Region protects a globally significant karst landscape—formed in limestone in which caves, underground rivers, sinkholes and large springs are common. The centerpiece is the Mammoth Cave System, which has a current known length of more than 400 miles, by far the world’s most extensive known cave system.
