Tuesday: Virgin Falls State Natural Area
October 18 All day
Tuesday, October 18. Virgin Falls State Natural Area, near Sparta TN. This is a beautiful 8 mile trek on the main trail, passing Big Laurel Falls as well as Sheep Cave and Falls, and ending up at the 110’ high Virgin Falls. This wonderful waterfall is one of the most beautiful and interesting falls around, flowing out of one cave into another. This hike is rated moderate to strenuous because of the 8 mile total length and because of the 800 elevation change. (We’ll be hiking uphill on the way out.) Please bring snacks, lunch, boots, sticks, and clothing suitable for the weather there that day.

We will carpool/convoy from the Panera / Kroger parking lot at 5552 Old Hickory Blvd, Hermitage, TN 37076 at 7 AM or you can meet us at the Virgin Falls parking lot located near DeRossett, TN at 9:00 AM.
