Cumberland Gap: On the Trail of Daniel Boone Professional Review and Guide
"This 100-mile drive follows the Wilderness Trail hacked out by Daniel Boone in 1775 through southwest Virginia to the narrow mountain pass at Cumberland Gap where Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky converge. Most of the drive is through small, mostly unspoiled towns.
Much of the drive is over a two-lane road along Cumberland Mountain past small towns, fields of corn and tobacco, tobacco barns, and grazing cattle. Along the way you’ll pass Natural Tunnel State Park. Natural Tunnel is a ten-story-high, 850-foot-long cave; a chair lift or short hike can take you down to the creek and railroad that pass through the tunnel. Special attractions: Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, Natural Tunnel State Park, Wilderness Road. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
