Take a Saturday to enjoy a very unique trail in the beautiful South Cumberland Recreation Area near Tracy City, TN. For the most part this is a loop trail with a total of 10 1/2 miles roundtrip hiking.
We'll be hiking part of the Fiery Gizzard Trail and starting at the northern trailhead of Grundy Forest State Natural Area. The trail features many waterfalls, cascading streams, gentle slopes, lush woodlands, spectacular rock formations, extremely rocky gorges and even a very small cave opening. We'll have an arduous climb before reaching a natural sandstone bridge and a short hike to Raven Point. Raven point is where we will stop for lunch and hopefully have some beautiful views.
