    Join State Naturalist Randy Hedgepath for a hike on the new section of the Cumberland Trail along Daddy’s CreekThe trail features a great overlook of the gorge, cliffs, and a lovely walk along the creek. It will be about 6 miles roundtrip and moderate in difficulty. Of course the naturalist will share a lot of nature interpretation along the way.

    Carpooling is necessary as there are few parking spots at trailhead. Meet Ranger Hedgepath at Cumberland Mountain State Park at 9:00 a.m. central. This is a great opportunity to stay overnight  at a cabin at Cumberland Mountain State Park

    Pets on a leash are welcome and children are encouraged to join us. Be sure to bring water and a lunch to have a picnic beside the creek. Good boots and walking sticks or poles are recommended.
