Established in 1974 as the first National River and Recreation Area, Big South Fork encompasses 125,000 acres on the Cumberland Plateau. Protecting the free-flowing Big South Fork of the Cumberland River and its tributaries, the area boasts miles of scenic gorges and sandstone bluffs, and is rich with natural and historic features. Outdoor activities include whitewater paddling, rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking, but for this presentation we’ll focus on one of our favorites – backpacking!
Join us for a virtual tour of the “Land of Gorges and Arches” located in southern Kentucky and northern Tennessee. Our presentation will provide an overview and history of this unique destination, as well as trip planning tips on trailheads, trails, campsites and our favorite scenic highlights.
