I am so fortunate to live just a few miles from Kings Gap. My Grandson & I went for a short visit on one of the most beautiful autumn days we've had in years. The view is always stunning and the foliage this year was incredible. If you aren't local, it is worth the drive just to see the Cumberland... 更多
I took kids to Kings Gap Environmental Ed. Center for a second grade school field trip last fall. What a terrific place! We took three classes on each of two visits, and the programs were phenomenal.

We take the family regularly to King's Gap for hiking and picnics. There are enough challenging trails for trips with the older children and some easy trails for the whole family including our little ones. Picnics up at the top near the mansion are nice, but our favorite picnic spot is the overlook as you drive up (almost at the... 更多
