Obed River Park/Arboretum
A Class I Arboretum is featured along the course of the paved Obed River Trail adjacent to the Obed River. A paved surface multi-use trail is for public use by non-motorized traffic: walkers, runners, roller-blade enthusiasts and bicycle riders.
The trail originates at the Cumberland County Obed River Park, a county owned park facility that features three picnic shelters, restrooms, and a playground. On the trail, a visitor passes two foot bridges, two historical markers, views the scenic Obed River and experiences a large number of native Cumberland Plateauplants, trees, and wildflowers. The trail gradually climbs to a large rolling meadow that has a segment of an abandoned railway corridor and the ruins of one of Cumberland County’s first dams. The Obed River Park Arboretum includes many native species of trees that have identification markers.
