The Mischa Mokwa Adventure Trail is a 20 mile trek thru Cumberland Gap National Park. It begins at Wilderness Road Campground and ends a Civic Park in Ewing, VA. It was established in 1966 (this is its 50th Anniversary) and and now follows portions of Gibson Gap Trail, Ridge Trail and Ewing Trail. Some of the old trail blazes can still be found which are short wooden posts with the outline of a bear carved in. Camping is via back-country permit only and is in designated campsites only. Call (606)248-2817 for permit information and campsite availability.
This trail can easily be completed in two days. Plan on a very strenuous ascent up the mountain. Trail can be rocky in spots. When up on the ridge anticipate cooler than normal weather and very wet conditions when cloudy. You will have to leave the ridge to find water, but it is available. Make sure to call for campsite reservation well ahead of departing as there is no camping on the trail. This is an absolutely beautiful hike and is physically demanding.
