Sand Cave

Tucked away in the Cumberland Gap National Park, hikers and horseback riders will discover a ceiling of gold, red and green, eroded rock forms and photo ops to cherish.  Access to this gem of a find is through Thomas Walker Civic Park in Ewing, Virginia.  A 3.9 mile hike brings the visitor to the entrance of this natural wonder. Continuing along this trail, leads to White Rocks (5.2 miles) where hikers and equestrians can view three states, Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee from the lookout atop the formation. It will not be a view soon forgotten! Yes, horses are welcome on this trail and there is ample trailer parking at the trailhead.
