The landscape of the northern Cumberland Plateau is one of mountain paths, winding trails, sacred hunting grounds, and rich timberlands. Each landscape is defined by its own distinctive geologic formations, natural characteristics, legendary characters, and history. Over the 150-mile length of the Cumberland Historic Byway, each one of these landscapes gives way to another, and forms what was, at one time, a hidden frontier in America. The Cumberland Historic Byway links the Upper Cumberland Region, the Cumberland Gap, and the Cumberland River. This byway holds natural resources, unique geology, rich histories, and recreational activities for its travelers.
