Cumberland Trail Hiking Log


Just a quick note. Kayaking has been my number one activity for the past 20 years, but once we had Aster I began to look for other activities that I could do while sharing time with her. It is through that, that I refound hiking and began to explore some of the trails in the area I found on various apps. Very few of the Cumberland Trails seem to be on apps as of right now, but instead my knowledge of them was do to seeing trailheads or bridges along the rivers we frequently paddled. And thus, inspired me to make the goal to hike each section of the Cumberland Trail, hopefully all with Aster.
