Possum Creek Gorge Professional Review and Guide
"This remote section of the Cumberland Trail explores a craggy parcel of the Cumberland Plateau, a land where clear streams and rock overhangs cut through rich forests, where mining history adds another layer to the landscape. Hikers are challenged with a rocky trail that is rarely level.Start by tracing Blanchard Creek to bridge Big Possum Creek, then hike below a long cliff line. Soak in a vista near Perkins Point. Turn into Little Possum Creek Gorge, reaching remarkable Stack Rock. Walk along a now-wooded strip mine. Leave the mined area and reach the cleverly named Imodium Falls, a worthy destination."
