The Cumberland Trail is a linear State Park in Tennessee. It is divided into segments and the segment I hiked was the Rock Creek Segment near Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee.
I hiked with about 10 others and we had a great hike. We started at the Retro-Hughes Trail Head and hiked 7.5 miles to the Lower Leggett Trail Head. We passed hilly terrain, waterfalls and bridge crossings with spectacular views.

The Tennessee Trails Association‘s Murfreesboro Chapter led this great hike. The members of our chapter that attended were Sara Pollard, Tony Jones, Ann Jacobs, Faith Bennett, Roy Duncan, Wayne Yancey and Craig and Lora McBride and we were also joined by several members of the Cumberland Trail Volunteer Organization who led the hike for us and gave us much insight to the trail itself.
