Cumberland Mountain State Park is situated on the Cumberland Plateau, a segment of the great upland, which extends from western New York to central Alabama. It is said to be the largest timbered plateau in America. This 1,720-acre park was acquired in 1938 as a project of the Farm Security Administration to provide a recreational area for some 250 families selected to homestead on the Cumberland Plateau.

The Homestead Museum, located one mile from the park, depicts the Cumberland Homestead Community of the 1930's. This community built the park along with help from the CCC and WPA.

  • Great trails! Cute dogs! The doggos love the paths but hate the bridges. They also like the ducks and geese. The new paved paths are spiffy! Don't be a litter bug. There was a banana on the white trail so be careful there may be some monkeys...
  • This is my favorite place to go to take a hike with my dogs. There is one trail that is about 2 or 3 miles then that same trail connects to another that is about 5 or 6 miles. The scenery is amazing. You walk right next to the water to a rope bridge perfect for a few pictures. We actually took our engagement pictures here it was very beautiful. Certain times of the year you can also rent canos and stand up boards for free.
