 The Cumberland Trail is a Tennessee State Scenic Hiking Trail and it became Tennessee's 53rd state park in 1998. In addition to providing multiple recreational opportunities, this protected greenway will act as a buffer to protect water quality and provide natural habitat for animals.

The Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Park, is the state's only linear park that runs 300 miles. The park cuts through eleven Tennessee counties including the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park on the Tennessee-Virginia-Kentucky border and Signal Point near Chattanooga.

One hundred fifty miles of the Cumberland Trail are open and ready to explore. With breathtaking mountain views and an abundance of wildlife. Your walk includes sites from the Cumberland Mountain Segments above LaFollette and Jacksboro and the Cumberland Gap National Military Park as well as Grassy Cove Segment on Black and Brady Mountain in Cumberland County. The Tennessee River Gorge Segment in Prentice Cooper State Forest, and the Obed Wild and Scenic River Segment in the Obed River Gorge and Catoosa WMA is also a part of the one hundred fifty mile stretch.

 The Cumberland Trail wraps around the remnants of the Cumberland Mountains that once sat as high as the Rockies. The trail represented a barrier to all who dared push through storied gaps westward onto and over the Cumberland plateau. It now provides a link north to south, forming natural connections and opportunities for scenic vistas and curious geological formations.

The Cumberland Trail is designed and built to minimize the potential environmental impact on sensitive wildlife habitat, unique aquatic or terrestrial habitats, or endangered/threatened species. The Cumberland Trail's environmentally conscious footprint on the land provides the hiker with picturesque waterfalls, scenic overlooks, and a wilderness experience rare in the eastern US.

The Cumberland Trail as a center for recreational activities and conservation on the Cumberland Plateau, will also be a provider and source of environmental education of both the young and the old in the Southeast on our natural world and conservation inherent to a stable planet.

Grassy Cove History
Vicky Poe, Realtor/ Auctioneer (Good Ole Rocky Top)
The Upper Cumberland Geneology Support Group met tonight.  The guest speaker was Martha Hale Kemmer.  She is a very interesting speaker.  Martha is a six generation native of Grassy Cove and it is her passion to relay her family history.  Grassy Cove was settled in 1801 by a caravan of settlers from Virginia.  They were veterans of the Revolutionary War that were looking to collect on land grants.  Grassy Cove is part of the Cumberland Mountains and Cumberland Plateau.  The steep and rugged terrain according to Martha was so difficult for early pioneers that it took 7 horses to pull an empty wagon up the mountains.  These settlers had climbed to the top of the Plateau and decided to explore.  They found the valley of Grassy Cove.  The trees had been burned by the Indians for hunting purposes and this lush grass had grown up as tall as a horse.  Six of the settlers decided that they would settle here.  Grassy Cove covers 10,041 acres with about 4600 acre of bottom land.  It is 6 miles long and 2 miles wide.  It is a limestone sink with caves and artesian springs and fertile farm land.  Grassy Cove tends to flood about every 7 years.  The water drains through Mill Cave.  It takes about 7 days for the water to 14 miles away thata begins the Sequatchie River.  AT one time Grassy Cove was a thriving community with 200 families.  The Kemmers have a General Store that has supplied this valley for generations.  Martha entertained our group with stories from her childhood.  She spiced it up historical stories of Grassy Cove to include the petrified  Civil War Soldier.  Stories of the Civil War that tore the community apart. Grassy Cove is a picturesque part of our county. Gorgeous valley surround by a spectacular mountain with history as interesting as it is beautiful.  If you would like a charming speaker to spin the history of our community Martha fits the bill.  Thank you Martha for a wonderful evening.
