Hi. Is the KY/TN/VA marker easily accessible? And furthermore, it is safe to go there by myself? Thanks!

The marker is at the top of a hill at the end of a trail-there’s a gazebo and a small plaque for each state along with a marker on the ground.

I feel it’s safe alone during the day. We saw deer and wildlife. It’s quite a hike but my husband and I are older so depends on your age and stamina. Follow signs closely and it’s a very cool place

I believe so by going on the original trail. They are all very clearly marked trails and the rangers at the welcome center could not be more helpful.

It it safe to go by yourself it is a good trail but it is a strenuous hike up most of the trails are a tough on me. I am 68 so younger people won't think they are that tough

It’s predty easy to find. The visitor center is north of tunnel but the tristate market easier to park close to the gap creek coffee shop which is in Cunberland Gap. My Grieve hikes there alone w her dog. I’ve never been on trail close to Markert where I didn’t see other hikers And feel it’s low on crime there. But u never know. At least tell ranger first where u plan to go

It is not paved, and for those who are afraid of heights like me, it may be a bit steep at the very end. However, I was able to do it, and definitely recommend it. When my family and I visited in March, we hesitated at first because there were no one other hikers nearby and the trail seems isolated. I would not go alone, but maybe now in the summer, there would be more people in the area. You can get a map of the trail at the visitor's center. The trail can be accessed from the Thomas Walker parking lot located before Pinnacle View. Once you park there, just walk along the first trail, known as Object Lesson Road, which connects to other trails that lead to the Cumberland Gap Pass and the Tri-State Peak.

I would say yes to both questions:) The market was nothing more than a fainted paint mark on the blacktop path. It on top of the mountain and an easy walk.
