    Leah Tyson reviewed Fiery Gizzard Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Grundy forest day loop to raven's point via the fiery gizzard gorge trail (hard) and back to parking lot on the dog hole trail (easy) took 6 hours at a pretty quick pace.
    POI: waterfalls, rock formations, creek and rapids, trees
    Difficulty: hard--the trail started out fairly easy on the day loop. After crossing the bridge to the fiery gizzard we took a right to the "gorge trail". This trail follows the creek for the most part. It does wind up and down the mountain becoming unclear at times to where the trail is. White markers are visible almost all of the time to lead the way BUT there are several trees down that block the visibility of the markers. The first obstacle we came to was a huge tree that had fallen over a rock staircase going downhill. Other places where it was challenging to navigate were on the bouldering sections--which were quite fun. TONS of rocks to jump to and from. You could easily roll an ankle. The rocks are great and add another element to the trail--just be careful. Overall my favorite part of the trail was the shaded creek area with the beautiful trees and rock formations. This section reminds me of the smoky mountains. One thing to note is that if you want to hike the entire fiery gizzard (13 miles one way) in one day there was a posting on the foster falls side about a local who offers a "taxi" service. His phone number is posted on the bulletin board in front of the bathrooms. I honestly thought about doing the trail and hitchhiking back to my car. It could be done. Especially the day we were there (Saturday). Lots of people stopping to see the foster falls.

    If you are at sycamore falls there is a side trail that ends at the top of the falls where the view isn't too good. For a better view go to the base. There is a fallen tree across the creek that you can easily walk across. Make sure you continue on the trail with white markers.
