Hazard Cave - Pickett State Park

Hazard Cave is located in Pickett State Park near Jamestown, Tennessee. Hazard Cave itself is located just 250 yards off of Hwy 154 near the parks southern entrance.

In the pictures below or while hiking the area you will notice the railing around sections of the sandy overhang.  These are to protect the endangered Cumberland Sandwort that grows here. Please do not go behind the fences and please keep pets from this area as well. The Cumberland Sandwort ONLY grows in the Big South Fork of the Cumberland watershed in Pickett, Fentress, Morgan and Scott counties in Tennessee and McCreary county in Kentucky.

Hazard Cave isn't a typical Tennessee "cave" it's more what we call an "overhang" or an "Indian Rockhouse". A big one, probably the biggest one I have seen in Tennessee. I guess that is what made it attractive to Native Americans who frequented the areas overhangs and caves and they moved through this area while hunting.
