Hidden Passage Trail

  Hidden passage trail has a little of something for everyone's liking. This trail with its waterfalls, caves, hemlock forests, rock formations and the unobstructed views of adjacent mountains that seem as if you could reach out and touch them make this a must see and at the top of my list. The trail is moderate/difficult depending on your pace. We started this 10 mile trail at 3:30 pm and finished it at 7:30pm with frequent 10 minute stops along the way but
    would not recommend this to someone not looking for a workout. This trail can be quite dangerous as you walk along cliff edges less then a foot from the trail. I would NOT recommend taking children on this trail. We hiked this trail
in august on a cool day cloudy low 80's.

When was the last time you got out in nature a bit? Hidden Passage Trail in Pickett County, Tennessee is such a great place. Hiking trails are all over the Cumberland Plateau Mountains, it's a great hiking area. As long as you like the outdoors you will like Tennessee.
A long drive separates Somerset from Hidden Passage Trail, but it is a really good trail. There's some flowing water close
by, Watson Branch is a stream you can go to while here. Stay the night at Saddle Valley Campground, and Natural Bridge Creek is one of the streams nearby that might be worth a visit. There's so much to do here at Hidden Passage Trail that you need to camp here for a while, Big South Fork - True West is a nice place for that.
