The Friends of the Cumberland Trail is a non-profit organization that preserves and protects the ecology, history and culture of the Cumberland Trail State Scenic Trail. Imagine a foot trail traversing the mountain tops, river gorges, meadows, and valleys of the Cumberland Plateau through 11 East Tennessee counties and traversing 350 miles. Consider the rich history, the musical heritage, the thousands of plants, trees, and creatures unique to the Cumberland Plateau, and the need to preserve, protect these resources and to educate Tennesseans and visitors, and you can begin to understand the breadth of this project.
