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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
