Event Summary

Come journey through the scenic beauty of one of Tennessee's most beloved hiking trails at Virgin Falls State Natural Area, this time as a Beginner Backpacking trip! We will take an easy 5-miles to our campsite (downhill), then hike a more strenuous 5 miles the next day back to our cars (uphill). The good news? We have most of the day to do it!

It's considered a moderate to strenuous trail, with creek crossings (water levels vary) and some strenuous parts, so proper trail shoes must be worn, and hiking poles are recommended.

Price: Free!
