Piney River Trail with Twin Rocks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Piney River Trail is a wonderful 8.3-mile trail that was originally set aside as a pocket wilderness but is now managed as part of the Cumberland Trail. It is a remote trail, ascending along a “dinky-line” grade up Piney River, and then up Duskin Creek. There are lots of cascades along the river and rock formations and big trees along the trail.

This trail was one of the original Bowater pocket wilderness trails, built in the early 1970s. In fact, much of the infrastructure on the trail appears to have been built by the
Bowater folks, including a beautiful 100-foot-long suspension bridge across the river."
