The Gap Cave Trail at the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in Virginia, near Cumberland Gap, is a short 0.2 mile out-and-back hike from the Wilderness Road Trail to the Gap Cave and back.
Gap Cave is formerly known as Cudjo's Cave and lies right on the Virginia and Tennessee border and lies just below the Pinnacle Overlook Trail.
You can pay for tours through the cave and people are still discovering new section of the cave all the time. As of 2015, 18.5 miles has been mapped of the cave.
In order to reach the cave, take the Wilderness Road Trail west until you find signs for Gap Cave.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
