Gateway Communities

The Friends of the Cumberland Trail have embarked on a project to offer information about amenities and features in the Trail’s neighboring communities. The list will contain information such as the community’s government standing (incorporated, township, city, etc), population statistics, a community description, food, lodging, gas, trail suppliers, historical landmark, and medical.

Anyone interested in donating their time and information to help Cumberland Trail visitors better understand these communities should contact the Cumberland Trail office by phone to get involved.  Call (423-566-2229), or contact the CT by email at friendsoftheCT@gmail.com .
