Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Park

The Cumberland Trail follows a line of ridges and gorges along the eastern escarpment of the Cumberland Plateau and Cumberland Mountains. The trail begins at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park and travels through 11 Tennessee counties.

Our fundraising efforts are focused on acquiring the land needed to complete the trail, as well as for trail building and due diligence around archaeological studies and appraisals. So far, we’ve invested over $100,000 in renovations, restoration and impact studies for the Cumberland Trail, supporting 51 miles of new trail construction along the Laurel Snow State Natural Area.
