Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail

The Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail region stretches from Scott County, where a reconstructed blockhouse shows how settlers joined together and sheltered at forts and blockhouses on their way west, to Cumberland Gap, where you can stand on a Pinnacle and see three states stretched before you.

This part of Southwest Virginia stretches along Route 58 through verdant valleys and past two state parks. Natural Tunnel and Wilderness Road, culminating at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park. Opportunities for recreation abound: fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, exploring caves and cliffs, and viewing both the rich history and abundant wildlife of the region.

The Friends of Southwest Virginia works across a 19 county, four city and 53 town region to preserve, promote and present the cultural and natural assets, click here for more information on visiting our region.
