Dickenson County Virginia Hiking Trails

Cumberland Mountain Trail

George Washington and Jefferson National Forests

Length:  25.7 mile
Rating: Strenuous

Many scenic overlooks are located along the trail in the form of natural openings and large rock outcrops. These overlooks provide views of Virginia and Kentucky. Viewing is especially spectacular during Fall Foliage. Pine Mountain is relatively isolated, having only one access road suitable for vehicular travel. This solitude is much sought after by the hikers and horse riders who frequent the trail.
The Forest Service has trailhead parking for horse trailers at Forest Service Road 616 at Mullins Pond and also at Counts Cabin approximately 1 mile east of Blowing Rock on State Route 611. The Forest Service has a volunteer agreement with the Cumberland Mountain Trail Riding Club in Clintwood, Virginia to assist in the maintenance of this trail. The trail club holds several rides each year with as many as 150 riders participating in each ride.

Trail Beginning: Trail begins at Pound Gap, Virginia on Forest Service Road 201. 

Trail Ending: Trail comes down from Pinnacle Rock to the Breaks Interstate Park.

Requires map reading skill and challenge to travel. Hikers and horseback riders are encouraged to carry water. Safety is also a concern because the trail is steep and rocky and there are large rock outcrops along the trail.


Access points to the trail exist off U.S. 23 at Pound Gap, and State Route 630 in Wise. Access points in Dickenson County are off Forest Service road 616 and State route 611. There are at least 7 access points to the trail off State Routes 630 and 611.
