About South Cumberland State Park Sherwood Forest

South Cumberland State Park Sherwood Forest

South Cumberland State Park includes a variety of hiking trails in the Tims Ford Lake Area.  The closest is the Sherwood Day Loop in Sewanee.  

The acquisition of nearly 4,000 acres south of Sewanee immediately made the Lost Cove area a major unit of South Cumberland State Park.  One of Tennessee State Parks' first objectives was to get a trail built on the property, so the public could begin to enjoy its latest wild land holding in the South Cumberland region. The Sherwood Day Loop, a 2.4 mile trail with majestic views and interesting geological features.

This forest community has numerous dominant species that include sugar maple, buckeye, tulip poplar, buckeye, and basswood. Many of the slopes and spurs are an oak-hickory forest community with white oak prevalent on midslopes and scarlet, black, and chestnut oak occurring on drier upper slopes. The natural area has a wonderful spring wildflower display that adds much seasonal color to the forest floor.
