    The "Wilderness Road" Trail

    An Old Iron Forge along the Wilderness Road Trail

    This trail follows the original route of Daniel Boone's "Wilderness Road." It is reclaimed wilderness today. After the tunnel was built through Cumberland Gap, the old highway over it was replaced with this well graded three-mile-long footpath. Along the way you will see the this old iron furnace and other reminders of pioneer activity. This hike is a must for those who want to get a feel for the original "Wilderness Road".

    Its worth the winding drive up the mountain (ok, I liked the drive too) to see a great view of Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky at once.

    The actual Gap (the low spot)

    It's cool to know that Daniel Boone and a large percent of American ancestors came through this gap to the West.
