Owner description: Contains the original trail marked out by Daniel Boone in 1775.
Reviewed 13 February 2018

Go to the Visitor's Center and watch the film about Daniel Boone and the opening of Cumberland Gap to settlers. Wander through the interactive exhibits and let the kids dress up like Colonial era children. Then head up to the Pinnacle overlook where you can see 3 states (on a clear day). If you are a hiker, there are miles and miles of trails to traverse.

The Cumberland Gap was the gateway to the west that allowed America to expand beyond the east coast. The legacy of Daniel Boone is very rich in the area. There's plenty to see and do, lots of excellent hiking trails, and breath taking natural beauty that makes it a jewel of Appalachia. On my trip I'd only planned 2 days to spend there, but will definitely be going back for a longer stay this fall.

Snow flew the day we visited, so some parts of the park were icey and closed, but we loved the award winning films documenting the history of the " Warrior Path" as Cumberland Gap was known. The Park Ranger at the front desk is a marvelous guide and historian, most helpful and fun. The snowy scenery was beautiful and still, and historical figures who walked this land are fascinating.

I love this park there’s 82 miles of trails and we had a great time going to the tri-state marker where you can see Virginia Tennessee and Kentucky then we had a tour that went up to the Hensley settlement which is a very neat preserve settlement back from the early 1900s and it’s gorgeous up there
