A historical multi-use trail that extends into Cumberland Gap.

Daniel Boone blazed this trail back in the late 1700s and it became the famous passageway for eastern pioneers traveling to the Midwest. The L&N Rail Company built their railway along this course carrying coal and supplies to various locations up and down the east coast. The abandonment of this rail line left the opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to adopt this trail as a source of recreation. Today the Wilderness Road Trail covers 10 miles of hiking, mountain biking and equestrian pathway. The trail encompasses state park land and ties in with the Cumberland Gap Historic Park.

Directions: From Ewing, VA, The park is located 5 miles west of Ewing, Virginia at the intersection of U.S. 58 and Rt. 923. Follow the park signs to the entrance. There is only 1 parking lot and the trail may be accessed from this point.
