The fitness trail is a great little 2mi hike on the edge of Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. I love doing this trail in the mornings with my dog. Definitely gets your blood pumping, but I’m not gasping for air at the top of the hills. I like to walk the small paved area last as a nice little cool down.

Very nice, relatively easy, quick hike that can be done in about 30 minutes. It is a relaxing hike with a wide path and cool surrounding, which include benches if you just want sit and enjoy the woods. Dog friendly (on leash) and there are places that you can take off path to get to picnic areas near the creek. I do this hike upwards of 2-3 times a week. Recommend to beginners or people that just want to be outside a little bit.

Great trail if your just getting into hiking or you want to walk your dog. It’s beautiful.

The trail head is located at the welcoming center. Saw lots of animals hanging around. Good short hike if you want to stretch your legs.
