Cumberland Gap trail map at Woodland Art Fair, August 20-21

2016 Cumberland Gap trail map, hiking information

2016 Cumberland Gap trail map and hiking information

The update to our Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is almost complete. Much like the old map, our 2016 version is a 1 inch to 1/2 mile scale map with 50-foot contours, trail elevation profiles, and  GPS-mapped trails shown in vivid full-color printing. This year we added a layer that shows density of canopy coverage and GPS-mapped Caldwell Gap Trail. The size of the park has increased since our last update, so we’ve included most of the additional land.

If you want to check out the map, please visit our booth this weekend (location and coordinates are shown on the below map). Find us on the Woodland Christian Church side of the fair at the shady bottom of the hill.

The map is two double-sided 19.5″ x 13.25″ full-color nicely printed pages. The map inset side has four maps of popular recreation destinations in the area with 2014 aerial photography as a base map. Elevation profiles now have all trails in the park shown. We’ve also updated our Bird’s Eye View map, with trails and overnight camps. We’re fleshing out the companion website with trail information and suggested trips in the Gap.

Our interactive maps show trails, trailheads, scenic views, and destinations with a companion guide that shares good backcountry hikes and notes about trail conditions. Our weather station for the park will help you plan your trip and understand mountain climate. Admire the ancient forces of nature as you hike along pioneer trails such as Boone’s Trace and the Wilderness Road.
