Nice hike; involves some climbing but nothing too hard. I would rank the difficulty moderate rather than easy. Passes several interesting historical sites including (obviously) Cumberland Gap but also Fort Foote, the site of a Civil War-era fort. The view from the gazebo atop Tri-State Peak is not that impressive: the clearest sight lines are to the northwest where a power line sits directly in front of you.

Was a nice hike for a good mid-day work out. We ventured further to Tenn. trail to a see some Civil War earthworks. This extra trail was a bit more challenging.

Great hike if you are looking for a quick one. There is a small climb for the last little bit (~0.2-0.3 miles) but still would say one of the easier ones in the park.

Me and my dog hiked this trail starting at the Iron Furnace in Cumberland Gap, TN. Pretty easy trail. Gets a little steep toward the end, but it pays off with a nice view of Middlesboro, KY. There's a guestbook to sign and a little pavilion commemorating where KY, TN, and VA all meet. Would recommend!

My family and I LOVED this! The hike wasn't hard and with the shade tress and berries along the way we hardly noticed the heat. A little dip in the falls made it fun.
