Trail running from Nashville, Tennessee to Kings Mountain, Kentucky[1]

Historical Background

The main trunk (#25) of this pioneer trail was called the Nashville-Lexington Road, (see entry herein under that name). A spur (#25A) of the main route connected with the Tennessee River, Ohio and Great Lakes Trail south of the aforementioned Nashville-Lexington Road. A second prong separated from the main route at Pitman’s Station and proceeded to the Cumberland River, at Burkeville on Cumberland County, Kentucky. SOURCE: Meyer, William.
