Crab Orchard Mountain Segment
A critical gap in the Cumberland Trail may be eliminated in the near future. Efforts are underway to acquire a 4,500 acre tract of land on the north side of the Crab Orchard Gap in Cumberland County known as the Lone Star property. Acquisition will allow the trail to be routed up and over a mountain ridge and emerge close to Ozone Falls SNA. Contact TennGreen at https://www.tenngreen.org/ to learn how to donate for this acquisition.
When the Ozone Falls to Black Mountain Section opens in 2020 an eight mile, dangerous road walk will be eliminated and replaced with roughly four miles of trail and a thousand foot road walk on a lightly traveled side road. Read more
