The Wilderness Road Trail at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park near Cumberland Gap, Virginia is an easy 1.4 mile out-and-back hike that leads from the Daniel Boone visitor center west toward the Gap Cave Trail and the Tennessee Road Trail to the Iron Furnace.

This trail is flat and easy with not much elevation change, but there are a couple of waterfalls along the way. You'll pass a creek that spills over the trail - there's a bridge you can use to cross it and waterfalls to each side; however, during the summer the waterfalls are hard to see without hiking down the hill to get a closer view. The waterfalls looked to be about 10 feet in height or more, but it was difficult to tell at the time.

Biking and dogs are allowed here.

Before you leave...

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. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We 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 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
