Attention:South Cumberland State Park was recently the recipient of a Recreational Trails Program grant for the Foster Falls Trailhead Renovation and Fiery Gizzard Trail Maintenance projects. On September 26, 2016, construction will begin at the Foster Falls trailhead and will continue until further notice. Construction should not interfere with activities at this time; however it could cause minor disruptions in the parking area. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation during this time, and we apologize for the temporary inconvenience.
Interpretive Programs and Events
Throughout the year interpretive or recreational programs are offered by staff or volunteers of South Cumberland State Park. The greatest number of programs are offered during the summer but participants are welcome during all seasons. These programs vary from year to year but may include: interpretive hikes/walks, canoeing, introductory rock climbing, animal shows, instructional classes, start gazing, creek critter surveys, etc.
While visiting South Cumberland be sure to take advantage of the programs being offered. Many are geared towards children while others may be geared primarily to an adult audience. Detailed descriptions of offered programs can be found at the park’s Facebook page or on our events web page.
South Cumberland also offers some annual programs and events including the Friends of South Cumberland sponsored Trails and Trilliums event, Savage Gulf Marathon and the Fishing Rodeo. For more information about these, please call the park or check the event web page.
