Byway Landscapes

The Byway links a series of views to rural historic landscapes that are evocative of the pioneer era and frontier culture.

Peaks and Lookouts

The varying topography along the Cumberland Byway provides for countless peaks and lookouts that can and should be capitalized upon. The prevalence of these lookouts necessitates further investigation through on-the-ground reconnaissance to determine which of these are accessible by trail or road and which could be marketed to add to the scenic nature of the Byway. Analysis of the lookouts should begin by investigating those that fall within a one-mile radius of the Byway. Through cooperation with the State Parks Service and private landowners, the peaks and lookouts adjacent to the Cumberland Byway can be developed into trailheads and picnic areas to serve as rest areas and jump off points for the Byway.
