The story of the early pioneers' and settlers' migration west through Cumberland Gap comes to life as visitors experience the first great gateway to the west. Follow the buffalo, the Native American, the longhunter, the pioneer... all traveled this route through the Virginia mountains into the wilderness of Kentucky. Modern day explorers and travelers stand in awe at this great gateway and the many miles of trails and scenic views found in the park which features accessible picnicing and camping.
