From the Black Mountain state-registered natural area, where massive rock formations create a maze of passages, the Cumberland Trail follows the ridgeline of Black Mountain and Brady Mountain for distant views of Grassy Cove. You may camp along the trail, but no campfires are allowed. Segments of the trail are under construction by volunteers. At this writing this Grassy Cove section and a section at Prentice Cooper to the south are the only segments on the South Cumberland. Eventually, the trail will connect these segments.

Alot of trash and pretty down-trodden due to 4 wheelers and thoughtless people. Scenery is beautiful
