  1. My husband and I hiked the trail in the Piney Falls natural area this past Saturday. We found the trail markings dangerously inadequate. We have been hiking for nearly 50 years in many areas of the country. In Piney Falls, there are many trails that do not travel from the trailhead to the upper falls and lower falls and back to the trailhead. With nearly nonexistent trail blazes or signage, it is difficult to know which trail to take. We took a wrong turn onto a trail to nowhere and ended in a very dangerous situation, requiring rescuing. Please mark to trails.

    • Many areas of the trail are being still being built and improved. Blazes and signage are a part of those efforts. Thank you for mentioning these concerns and they have been forwarded on to those who can make these improvements. We are very sorry to hear how your situation ended and every attempt will be made by the Cumberland Trail State Scenic Trail to prevent similar incidents in the future.
