Thursday, February 9 – Virgin Falls State Natural Area. 2080 Scotts Gulf Road, Sparta. 9.0 miles round trip rated strenuous. Joint hike with the Murfreesboro Chapter.. The trail descends around 900 feet in elevation along a path that in many areas is rocky with uneven footing. Because this trail is rugged, we will allow 6-7 hours for this hike and will have to maintain a pace to allow plenty of daylight. Virgin Falls State Natural Area is the most-visited state natural area in Tennessee with interesting scenery and features three beautiful waterfalls Big Laurel Falls, Sheep Cave Falls and Virgin Falls. Bring lunch, water, and wear sturdy hiking boots. For more information or to sign up, contact Marietta Poteet, email@example.com or 931-924-7666.
