Cumberland Mountain State Park

Cumberland Mountain State Park

This is a wonderful historic park.  The site was part of the Cumberland Homesteads, which was a program of the New Deal in the 1930s.  In addition to the incredibly scenic location along the dam of Byrds Creek, the park also features six hiking trails, totaling about 15 miles.  In addition, they have great cabin facilities for an overnight stay and one of the best restaurants in Tennessee's state park system.

You can also enjoy many activities such as picnicking, basketball, board games, horseshoes, playgrounds, softball, tennis, volleyball, fishing, hiking and swimming. The park is home to the Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain, which has been consistently recognized as a top golf course in the southeastern United States.
