Nestled at the foot of the Cumberland Mountains, scenic Cumberland Gap offers breathtaking beauty and a charming "Mayberry" atmosphere. "The Gap" was once called "Gateway to the West," now home to everything from specialty shops to the national park.
The Pinnacle Overlook surpasses its name. At an elevation of 2,440 feet, the overlook offers a gorgeous view across Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. A winding 4-mile road leads from the visitor center at Cumberland Gap National Historic Park to the viewing platform, overlooking the historic town of Cumberland Gap. The actual Cumberland Gap provided a key passageway through the mountains for pioneers such as Daniel Boone, and is located within the park, at 1,600 ft. elevation. The visitor center houses a museum, theater and shop showcasing hands-on exhibits, films and local crafts.
The largest and oldest retail gift outlet in The Gap is Cumberland Gap General Store. With more than 6,000 items in stock, this unique store has something for everyone.
The historic town of Cumberland Gap is a stop on the White Lightning Trail, one of the 16 regional trails in Discover Tennessee Trails & Byways, your pass to the backroads that will help you discover what lies off the beaten path in Tennessee.
