Cumberland Gap Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Talk about historic hikes! This trek, at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, traces the route used by man and beast for millennia, working their way from the East into what became Kentucky. Made famous by Daniel Boone, the passage through Cumberland Gap follows the “Wilderness Road,” now restored to its original appearance.
You will walk a foot trail, tracing Daniel’s steps to and through the actual Cumberland Gap, marked by a memorial. Your return trip leads past Cumberland Furnace, an iron-making operation, as well as Gap Cave, which also figure in the history of this mountainous land where Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky come together."
