See the Top 5 Overlooks in the Cumberland Plateau!

You certainly don’t have to live here to enjoy these beautiful mountains, so come on up!  The waterfalls and sunsets are a photographers dream!  But of course you don’t have to take pictures to just come and see for yourself the beauty of the natural surroundings.   While there are many areas to see, large and small these are a few that really hit all the high points for overlooks and views.

Welch Point in White County is easy to get to and offers the views of Scott’s Gulf.  You can enjoy the views across the Caney Fork River Valley.

Black Mountain Rocks is located in the Cumberland Trail State Park in Cumberland County.  It overlooks (2) giant sinkholes, including Grassy Cove, North America’s largest sinkhole by volume.

Buzzards Roost is very close by at Fall Creek Falls State Park just (2) miles from Deer Creek or Rocky Top.  This area offers great views from Pine Creek to Cane Creek with plenty of hiking and waterfalls to see.

Pogue Creek Overlook is in Pickett County and is located in a State Natural Area..  This area has sandstone cliffs and rock shelters with rock and mineral formations.

Martha’s Pretty Point is also in White County at Virgin Falls State Natural Area.  If you are hiker, you will love this one!  This 9 mile round trip will make you want to hang a hammock and stay a while!  Your reward will be the spectacular views of waterfalls that emerge from caves and return into them, uniquely exposed on the side of the Plateau.

Take in the views and scenery and come back and relax at Deer Creek Cabin or Rocky Top Cabin.  Enjoy the hot tub and unwind after a fun day of hiking.  Make your reservation today!
