If hiking is your jam, or maybe you need a new hobby that's easy and awesome, this trek might be just the thing. This trail in Tennessee not only has views but also leads to a treasure trove of beautiful waters. 

This trail is so popular that the State Park it runs through is named after it. The Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Scenic Trail State Park gives you a pretty good idea about its focal point. 

The trail currently has 185 miles of scenic natural views, beautiful rock formations, lush trees and pools of water that are pure beauty. 

While it's still currently under construction, once completed, it will have over 282 miles of trails that will extend from Tenessee, Virginia and Kentucky border to the Tenessee, Alabama and Georgia border. 

Both of these trails have numerous views of blue clear-water pools that appear to be an emerald green hue. 

The hike snakes around Cumberland Mountain, giving sights from a bird's eye view as well. You'll be able to see all the colors under the sky from below and above. 

The best part of this beautiful experience is the 8.3-mile trailhead on Montlake Road that leads to an upper and lower path.
