Loop trail is 1.8 miles. The Black Mtn. thru section of the Cumberland Trail is about 3.5 miles in length. The seed ticks and chiggers are everywhere near the campsite. If you hike it in warm weather don't forget your bug spray. The Southern overlook is one of the best overlooks on the plateau.Marissa Webb (752)1 month ago22 Completed11 ReviewsGorgeous, breath-taking views just outside of Crossville. Not a hard hike, great spot at the overlook to pack a picnic lunch and eat it while enjoying those views!G Landen (257)8 months ago10 Completed5 ReviewsVery easy and fun hike. This does have a great overlook view from the south side. It looks over Grassy Cove and Grandview beautifully.

We hiked down to the bat cave also, which is a pretty moderate hike.Stacy Reed (1808)1 year ago30 Completed14 ReviewsBeautiful views, we hiked this one at sunset. There is a small springhouse during the hike. Hike is a nice easy hike. Two different areas of overlooks.Michael Curry (942)4 years ago20 Completed16 ReviewsThis is a great trail. I ran the first 0.5 miles of it, and made it to the southern overlook. It's an incredible view. As for mountain biking, it would be absolutely fun. There is enough room to maneuver the trail with lots of ruts and roots to devour. If you're looking to camp, there are spots to do this as well. It's an overall good trail.
