The trail used to arrive to the narrows, is Pulliam Creek Trail. off Big Hungry Road.

( Is quite a dangerous trial. ) is on the right side of Pulliam creek trail. starts off as a visual trail, with a few switchbacks, then goes straight down to the river.
Pulliam Creek Trail eventually comes to Bear Branch Trail, which is on the left, an then comes to the
Green River cove trail. The Green River cove trail, if you continue on trial straight, blazed blue,

If you go right, blue blaze, will take you to the Green river. about 1/2 mile.

( Trail Maintainer. Wants you to be aware. Also, take water an snacks when you ever go Hiking.)

nice short hike, not good for climbing or bouldering. i think my 70 year old grandma could do this hike, but it was really pretty, so if you are looking for something short and not difficult, just to get out in the mountains- this is a really good hike for you

Great diversity of mountain range views and forest scenery. Definitely a hike worth doing!
