Wilderness Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail, which is the most difficult trail in this entire guidebook, extends along rugged bluffs of the Cumberland River at Cordell Hull Lake. The trail, also known as Cordell Hull Lake Horse Trail, begins along the shoreline and climbs to the first bluff, only to descend to a steep, narrow hollow, then climb back out. This process repeats itself many times. However, your efforts are rewarded with vistas, solitude, and a waterfall along the way.
Technically a horse trail, the path is also traveled by hikers and only lightly traveled by both groups. The trail is best enjoyed as an out-and-back hike. Begin Wilderness Trail by leaving primitive Holleman Bend camping area on the path to the right as you face the lake."
