Parks, Forests & WMAs
Recreation in this area, particularly OHV use, is an enormous economic driver for the region and should be capitalized upon in the development and promotion of the Byway.
Within the Cumberland Plateau lies the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, which draws thousands of horseback riders annually and is adjacent and/or attached to several state natural areas and parks that provide ample outdoor recreation activities of all types. Between Jamestown and Livingston, both the Sgt. Alvin C. York Historic Park and Cordell Hull Birthplace provide valuable insight into the history of nationally prominent figures whose pioneer spirit and hard-working nature can be directly tied to their connection with the Northern Cumberland Region.
Between Livingston and Celina, the Standing Stone State Park and Forest cabins and campgrounds provide housing opportunities for visitors to the park and adjacent communities. Several events at the park draw many visitors to the area, including the National Rolley Hole Marbles Championship, which draws visitors from all over the country.
