EVENT DETAILS

This trail is one of the most diverse and beautiful in Tennessee. We will do a large loop only backtracking about ¼ mile. The trail is very rocky in places as we start out and follow the stream for 3.7 miles. We will take this part of the trip at a slow pace as it offers many opportunities for pictures. Then we have 500 foot elevation climb out of the valley to a spectacular overlook called Ravens Point which we will break for lunch. From there we start back on moderate trails at faster pace for the return to the parking lot.
