Geocache Description:

Sloan’s Crossing Pond represents something unusual in this land of sinkholes around Mammoth Cave – a surface pond. Explore this quiet, special place and discover the rich wildlife of the pond, and the geology that produced an environmental oasis. The 0.4 mile wheelchair accessible trail is elevated above the forest floor.

The above coordinates are for parking. As with all caches in a National Park this cache is a virtual. In order to claim the cache you need to go counterclockwise around the trail and answer the three questions at the three stops below, e-mail me your answers and please do not post the answers on this page.

While sitting on the bench, look to your left about 10 feet you will see a tree (a dogwood) that has several trees joining at the base. How many trees join at the base?
