Grundy Day Loop is a 2 mile loop trail located near Tracy City, Tennessee and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Great trail with a lot of variation. Tons of places that you could stop and take a swim. I went during the winter (January) but it was still beautiful as a lot of the trees are conifer. A lot of pretty moss growing on these trees that have to be hundreds of years old, and tons of pretty river views. Make sure to take the extra mile to see Sycamore Falls! Bring some good shoes because though it's not
difficult there are a lot of big rocks and I could see beginners having some trouble.
I agree with reviews of it's beauty but think the level should be more of mild moderate than easy due to narrow rocky parts
No shortage of beauty on this loop. Very fulfilling hike with all of the swimming holes and constant sounds of the stream. Was a blast watching people jump from the falls into the aqua blue water. This is a must see trail for those looking for a short but gratifying hike!
Awesome easy trail! It turns moderate at some point but not too complicated for kids or slower paced folks. Very peaceful and tranquil. Several water holes to swim. Much of this trail is alongside a creek,you can walk along the trail path it down the creek.
By far my favorite hike! I loved that this trail followed a creek most of the way- as I love being near water. There were lots of places to stop and swim at too, some harder to get to than others. Since the area is so close to water, many of the rocks were slippery. Be sure to pack good, sturdy hiking shoes because with the combination of slippery rocks and a rough trail it is easy to slip. There are some narrow parts to the trail that have sheer drop offs right next to them so I can't stress enough how important it is to have good shoes.
It gets a little challenging at times but it was a lot of fun!!
One of my favorites! Beautiful trail.
Good trip. Beautiful scenery. Bring hiking shoes and a walking stick. You'll be glad you did
One of the best trails in the Chattanooga area. The day loop is one of my favorites. Most of it follows a creek. It is a relatively easier hike, however it does have a lot of roots and a rocky surface. A good pair of hiking shoes would be best and I like to use a walking stick. The waterfalls are very nice and the hike is very enjoyable.
Mostly walks along a creek with the view of several small falls. There are a lot of rocks & tree roots.
I loved that the large majority of the trail followed the river. It was so beautiful! I will for sure go again! just be careful when hiking. There are alot of roots on the trail and some steep cliffs
