Showcasing the wild highlands of Appalachia. 

The Pine Mountain State Scenic Trail is a linear state park still under development. Once completed, the long distance trail designed for primitive camping, backpacking and hiking, will span approximately 120 miles from Breaks Inter­state Park to Cumberland Gap National Historic Park and pass through many natural areas such as Bad Branch State Nature Preserve, Kingdom Come State Park and Blanton Forest along the Pine Mountain range.

Bring it all together.

The Pine Mountain State Scenic Trail will also be utilized as a segment of the proposed Great Eastern Trail that will link existing trails in the Appalachian Mountains into a new, long distance trail stretching ultimately from Alabama to New York. Due to its location in more remote areas of the Appalachians, hikers will have a more primitive backcountry experience, providing an alternative to the relatively crowded Appalachian Trail.
