TUNNEL STATE PARK called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by William
Jennings Bryan, has been attracting visitors to the mountains of
Southwest Virginia for more than 100 years. Today, it is the focal point
of Natural Tunnel State Park, an 850-acre park owned and operated by the
Commonwealth of Virginia. The 850-foot-long Natural Tunnel is more than
one million years old. The Norfolk Southern Rail System uses the track
that winds through the natural tunnel on a daily basis. Visitor access
to the tunnel is by a hiking trail or a chair lift. Once you make the
530-foot descent, a 500-foot boardwalk and observation deck are
provided-both accessible to physically-challenged visitors.
Natural Tunnel State Park has a lot to offer that will keep you busy and
entertained. Such offerings include: campground, swimming pool, hiking,
chair lift, picnic area, canoe trips, cave exploration, campfire
programs, geo-ranger programs, a visitor center, and amphitheater. One
of the newest features of Natural Tunnel State Park is the Cove Ridge
Educational Center. Cove Ridge is a beautiful lodge equipped with
meeting rooms and classrooms that are ideal for school groups, retreats,
etc. Dorm-style lodging accommodations are connected to the main
building. A huge deck on the back of the lodge affords guests and
visitors a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountains. For more
information, please contact the park at (276) 940-2674 or 800-933-PARK
WILDERNESS TRAIL is one of the nation's most historic routes. The
Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail was blazed by the legendary frontiersman
in 1775 from Long Island of the Holston at what is now Kingsport,
Tennessee, through Scott and Lee Counties and Cumberland Gap of Virginia
into Kentucky. It would become the route for hundreds of thousands of
settlers of the western frontier. For more information, call (276)
Chartered in 1778, Abingdon has
long been a center for culture and commerce. The first English
speaking settlement to be incorporated in the watershed of the
Mississippi, Abingdon was the principal distribution point for mail
and supplies on the Great Road to the farthermost wilderness of the
West. Abingdon was truly "the Gateway to America’s Frontier." It
offers great history, charm and romance!
DAY ONE Afternoon Arrival
Stop by the Abingdon Convention & Visitors Bureau (335 Cummings
Street) to find all there is to do in Historic Abingdon. Begin with
the self-guided walking tour of the twenty-block historic district
(brochure available at the Visitors Center). Stops will include the
Fields-Penn 1860 House Museum, the Martha Washington Inn, the Barter
Theatre, the Washington County Courthouse, and the Tavern. Check into
your accommodations (we have superb hotels and bed & breakfasts and
can assist you in finding lodging), and then enjoy a delicious dinner
at one of the many fine restaurants.
Start your day with a short drive to the "Decorator District" for some
serious shopping. Here you will find items for every taste ranging
from china to collectibles. Be sure to visit Dixie Pottery, offering
over 100,000 square feet of items from around the world. Return to
Abingdon for lunch at one of the fine restaurants. Stroll downtown and
browse through the many fine shops offering antiques, fine clothing,
and more! If you love fine Appalachian crafts, you will want to visit
the Cave House Craft Shop also located on Main Street.
After lunch make the short drive to White’s Mill. White’s Mill is one
of only a few remaining mills of its type. See broom makers and other
crafters at work. Return to Abingdon where you can have dinner at the
historic Martha Washington Inn. After dinner walk across the street to
the Barter Theatre, The State Theatre of Virginia, for an evening of
professional theatre. The Barter launched the careers of such notable
actors as Gregory Peck, Ernest Borgnine, and Patricia Neal.
Today continue your exploration of the arts. Last night you saw the
performing arts, today enjoy the visual arts. The tour begins at the
William King Regional Arts Center, A Partner of the Virginia Museum of
Fine Arts. While here enjoy exhibits in four galleries, talk with the
artists-in-residence, and shop the Museum Store. Afterwards travel to
the Arts Depot. Housed in an actual railroad depot are several
artists-in-residence offering works in a variety of media.
After lunch consider a walk or hike on the Virginia Creeper Trail
beginning in town on Pecan Street. Bike rental and shuttle services
are available. Or, visit Abingdon Winery and Vineyards or Wolf Creek
Winery for tours and tastings. Children will enjoy the large play
ground area, swimming pools, and skate park located at the Harry L.
Coomes Recreation Center on the east end of town. We can offer other
ideas for activities while in Abingdon, or perhaps after all you’ve
done, you might just want to take in a movie at the state-of-the-art
If you are seeking a special experience while in the area, Abingdon
offers unique services such as hot air balloon rides, carriage rides,
ghost tours, and fishing guide services. Just ask for more details!
The Commonwealth of Virginia acquired the tunnel and 100 surrounding
acres in 1967 from the Natural Tunnel Chasm and Caverns Corp. to
establish Natural Tunnel State Park. Approximately 750 additional
acres were later acquired and the park opened in 1971.
Natural Tunnel, called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by William
Jennings Bryan, has been attracting sightseers to the mountains of
southwestern Virginia for more than 100 years. Today it is the focal
point of Natural Tunnel State Park, a park which offers visitors not
only spectacular sights but also swimming, camping, picnicking,
hiking, a visitor center, an amphitheater and interpretive programs.
The creation of Natural Tunnel began more than a million years ago in
the early glacial period when groundwater bearing carbonic acid
percolated through crevices and slowly dissolved surrounding limestone
and dolomite bedrock. Then, what is now Stock Creek was probably
diverted underground to continue carving the tunnel slowly over many
centuries. The walls of the tunnel show evidence of prehistoric life,
and many fossils can be found in the creek bed and on tunnel walls.
Location: Natural Tunnel State Park is in Scott County, approximately
13 miles north of Gate City and 20 miles north of Kingsport, Tenn.. To
get there, from I-81, take U.S. 23 North to Gate City (approximately
20 miles). Take State Route 871 and go one mile east to park entrance.
Road State Park was purchased in 1993; the park is approximately
200 acres that lie astride the "Wilderness Road." Wilderness Road was
carved by Daniel Boone in 1775 to open America’s first western
frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion, built in
the 1870s, and Martin's Station, a replica of a fort built there in
1775. Click here to visit the Friends of Wilderness Road's website,
which provides details about the fort.
Karlan Mansion is unfurnished but available for rent for special
events. Bikes can be rented to ride the Wilderness Road Trail that
passes through the park. The park also has a self-guided hiking trail
as well as interpretive and environmental educational programs. Snacks
and other merchandise are available seasonally at the Wilderness Road
Outpost, located by Wilderness Road Trail.
Location: At the intersection of Routes 58 and 923, five miles west of
Ewing, Va., and six miles east of Cumberland Gap National Historical
Park, Middlesboro, Ky.
