Black Mountain Spring House

This is the spring house on Black Mountain that shelters the water source for Cumberland Trail hikers. The spring is located about 50 yards south of the trailhead and public parking area at the top of Black Mountain.

This spring house has a rich history. It has been used for generations by residents and visitors to Black Mountain.  The foundation of two houses that have been gone for decades can seen not far from the spring.
