From the information center, with its historic films, to the majestic White Rocks cliffs, to the stunning view from the Pinnacle overlook, the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is the perfect place for a family interested in history, and enamored of the outdoors.

What a wonderful park! Easy parking, incredible views, beautiful trails... I can't wait to return. My only regret is that I didn't start coming here years ago. There's so much to see.
