Field Trip: Cumberland Trail, Peavine Road to Devil’s Breakfast Table

May 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Description: This is sponsored by TNPS and TCWP. We will start at Peavine Rd. and hike along Daddy’s Creek staying mostly up on the bluffs. At the halfway point the trail drops to the creek. We will eat lunch there. You will see many rock formations and a wide array of flowers along this section of the Cumberland Trail (CT). We end at the shuttle point near the Devil’s Breakfast Table Area. This is a spot to see the federally listed Cumberland rosemary. As usual you may do this hike as an outandback. You can turn back to Peavine Rd. at any point making a hike of the length you desire. See Cumberlandtrail.org for map and description of the Devil’s Breakfast Table Section of the CT.
