Cinnamon Fern

Cinnamon Fern

During our CT trek, I recorded fern species seen.  These species recorded from along the CT are in bold below. The other fern species below are good ones to look for. Please send your additions, corrections etc. for this list

Abbreviations for Cumberland Trail Regions from South to North:

WR= Walden Ridge, COM =Crab Orchard Mountains, DC/OR =Daddy’s Creek/ Obed River, WBM= Wartburg Basin Mountains, CM= Cumberland Mountain

There are small transition areas which are not in any of these regions.

Limestone outcropping is found in COM and trail north from Cove Lake area before the climb up onto Cumberland Mountain.
