Overview

Description

Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the state, offering rugged geology and exceptional hiking. The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek, and elevation differs from 800 to 1,980 feet.

The most spectacular view into the canyon is an easy walk from the picnic area; however, hikers can also explore a rim trail or journey to the canyon floor by a series of staircases. Two waterfalls cascade over layers of sandstone and shale into pools below, with their flow depending on recent rains. This Waterfalls Trail is part of the popular Canyon Climbers Club.

Overnight guests can choose from cottages near the canyon edge, a modern campground and spacious, walk-in tent sites. Backpackers can enjoy camping in a hemlock grove on the 2-mile Backcountry Loop.

Geography:

Cloudland Canyon State Park is located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain and is the part of the Cumberland Plateau. The developed section of the park is located between the two canyons of Bear Creek and Daniel Creek, just before they come together to form the larger Sitton's Gulch Creek. Two waterfalls cascade over layers of sandstone and shale into pools below, with their flow depending on recent rains.
