Saturday – Fiery Gizzard Trail – South Cumberland State Park
October 22 All day
Fiery Gizzard Trail. South Cumberland State Park. 12.5 miles. Strenuous. Joint hike with the Highland Rim Chapter. Marietta Poteet and Sara Pollard will lead the hike. We will start our hike from the Grundy Forest State Natural Area picnic area and hike to Foster Falls. This is a beautiful trail that offers scenic views, waterfalls, rock formations and hemlock trees over 200 years old. This hike will include the approximately 2-mile rerouted section of the Fiery Gizzard Trail that drops down over the bluff and into the gorge and take a spur trail to the overlook at Raven’s Point. We will be taking the Dog Hole Trail to avoid the “boulder field” section of the Fiery Gizzard Trail. Shuttle set up will be required. Bring water, snacks and lunch.
