10K Challenge Trails & Maps
Marathon Trails Quick Links
Welcome to the Cumberland County Hiking Marathon 10K Challenge. As you hike these trails you will enjoy paved trails with easy gradients. The purpose of this challenge is to provide an interesting set of trails that can be enjoyed by those who find the marathon trails just too difficult to negotiate. We hope this challenge takes you places that you would not normally go and that you have positive experiences along the way. We hope you enjoy hiking these trails but please stay on the trail when hiking and respect private property in residential communities. Carry plenty of water at all times, use bug-spray and watch your step – it is easy to twist an ankle on rocks and tree roots. Pets are permitted on all trails but please pick up after your dog if it fouls the trail-bed.

2. Crossville Garrison Park Loop Hike – 2.2 K
4. Crossville - Cumberland Plaza – 2.6km
5. Cumberland Mountain State Park:
Storybook Paved Trail - 1.9km
Start at the kayak marina behind the restaurant. Cross the wooden bridge onto the Storybook Trail. Stop along the way and read the kid friendly signs. When you reach the road by the Park Office turn around and return. (There are public restrooms in the park office buildings and in the restaurant.)
The Cumberland Mountain State Park is very well known and there are plenty of road signs directing you to the park, which is about four miles south east of Crossville on Highway 127.
There is plenty of parking in the park but please do not park in the restaurant parking lot as that gets very busy at times. We suggest you park near the kayak marina behind the restaurant.
