Tennessee Governor Bill Lee announced today the addition of 6,229 acres to the Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Park. The trail runs through 11 counties including Scott, Morgan, Cumberland and Bledsoe counties. The land, known as the Lone Star property, will support wildlife habitat and additional public recreation opportunities. TDEC plans to use the land to develop a significant segment for the Cumberland Trail that will connect Ozone Falls State Natural Area to existing state owned land. When completed, the Cumberland Trail will extend more than 300 miles from its northern terminus in Cumberland Gap National Historic Park to its southern terminus at the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park.
