About Kings Bluff:

King's Bluff

A Small Paradise Along The Cumberland River

Kings Bluff is a limestone area located in Clarksville, TN. This area has approximately 170 routes, about 75% sport and the rest mixed or trad. Ratings range from 5.4 to 5.13b. The height varies up to 70 feet.

The area is OWNED by the Southeastern Climbers Coalition (aka SCC). Email or visit the SCC message board to get the combination.

Also note that the top of the bluff is off limits as some of it is private property.

If you visit King's Bluff regularly, we ask that you consider joining the SCC to help cover costs to keep the bluff open.

Nearest town or city: Clarksville
Directions: I-24 in TN, towards Clarksville. Take exit 11 (Clarksville / Adam) and turn south (towards Clarksville; it's a left turn if you're coming from Nashville). You'll get to a light with a K-Mart. Continue on for 5.7 miles past the light. You'll see an BP gas station on your right, and immediately after passing it you should turn left onto Max Court. Parking in the lot at the gate or the cul-de-sac is fine. Once at the cul-de-sac. Walk through the gap in the railing and the trail will take you down to the base of the cliffline.
