South Cumberland is one of the newer Tennessee State Parks. Almost all of our park lies atop the Cumberland Plateau and, unlike most state parks, ours is made up of ten different areas located in four different counties. The Visitor Center is located between Monteagle and Tracy City on Highway 41. From here the various components of our park are managed. Visitors can also obtain information and directions from the visitor center.

Beautiful and fun, easy trail. Not for small kids maybe though. :)

Very pretty. Great day hiking and great climbing.

Very easy trail, nicely marked and maintained(there's a section with recently fallen trees on top of the wide trail that was easy to bypass).
I enjoyed it and thanks to the picture here I decided on doing it with the whole family(4,7,12) and had a great time.

An easy trail to a gorgeous view. It leads to a strenuous trail down a crack in the cliff for those who want to have more of an adventure.

love it easy trail beautiful views

We did the Rim trail to Alum Gap and back around the loop to the parking lot. Basically a nice walk in the woods, about 7 miles. Foliage was blazing. Will backpack in next time and spend a night at the Alum
Gap CG. Lots of other trails to explore in the area.

Quick hike, breathtaking views!

We've had a very dry summer so on the early sept day I went there was no fall. Just the same, a beautiful area an dI will return when the water is up. Makes for a cool swimming hole either way.

Breathtaking scenery!!

The falls here are AWESOME!!! Don't overlook it because it is so short, you will seriously miss out!!! My wife and I swam in the falls for several hours. The water is super clean and fresh, the scenery is stunning, the people were awesome, and besides all that, if you want to make the hiking longer, there are several trails that can stretch it all the way out to a 26 mile out and back if that is your fancy. DON"T MISS IT!!!
