Getting There

This trail begins on the Pulliam Creek Trail off of SR 1802. After 1/2 mile notice wooden boards going down to a water fall on the left. There is also a nice camping area on the right about 3/4 of mile down the trail. Go south on this trail for about 1.2 miles. At this intersection, the Pulliam Trail continues south & east and veers left. Veer right down a steep and slippery trail to the foot of the Green River Narrows. The trail is marked by pink ribbons. Caution: this is an extremely slippery and dangerous route to take, but views of the Green River Rapids are worth the trip.I would not recommend taking any children on this trip and you must be in good shape. There are numerous rocks to sit on for sun bathing or watching the Kayaks come down the rapids. On occasion you will probably see abandoned Kayaks and views of the rapids might explain it.

From I-26 near Hendersonville, take Upward Rd (exit 22) and go east about 1.7 miles to Big Hungry Rd (SR1802). Continue east on SR1802 for about 3 miles and look for a trail head sign for Pulliam Creek Trail on the right. There is a slight area for cars on the right side of the road. If you cross a bridge, you've gone to far by 100 meters.

Great Hike! Tricky at the end, it’s very steep down into the gorge and was slippery and muddy after all the rain we’ve had, but awesome views at the bottom and well worth it!

HikingGreat!

The trail was just a nice walk in the woods until you got to the rope area, and then wow! Much more difficult but a lot of fun and the reward at the end is absolutely unbelievable. 10/10 recommend.

Went after a thunderstorm so it was slippery but nothing horrible. Great views when you finally get down, the river was beautiful with the amount of rain we got but crossing the board at the end scared me shitless. Would definitely recommend to moderate hikers

HikingGreat!Muddy

Fairly easy trail until you reach the final descent with the ropes. Not for the faint of heart, but the payoff is absolutely worth it! Trail is muddy and very slippery in rainy conditions so be sure to watch your footing and be careful near the rapids!

HikingGreat!

Well marked, easy walk to the rapids. The walk down to the rapids was a lot of fun but challenging, the ropes were a big help! Once you get to the bottom it is worth all of it. Amazing views, absolutely stunning! Well worth it!!

HikingBlowdownGreat!Rocky

The trail had some blowdown and that’s the reason for 4 stars but the payoff at the end is one of my favorites in the area. A few trees down and somewhat rocky and roomy but good trail and surprisingly not muddy. It was better than I remembered. Be sure you cross the two wooden bridges before you get to the route to the ropes. I was hiking the trail based on memory from a couple of years ago and started down too early. A hiking pole was helpful coming back up the hill. The ropes are tough but it only took me about 10 minutes with a few rests and not using the ropes.

This is a new favorite!! Challenging. Stunning. Watched 2 younger kayakers run The Narrows after a group of older folks decided against it, and that was super cool. I'll post a photo. Beware (if you aren't bringing your own ropes) - There were several that had frays and rips and I found part of a broken one in the leaves. One of the blue ropes was directed around a dead and swaying tree. Inspect the ropes before you trust them with your life. I was able to get around using those but it was tricky. Also, this is on game lands. Be visible.

Went exploring up the falls; so, it added a little distance to the overall hike.

Awesome hike! Great fall color, sound of rushing water the entire way, and a challenging hike. There were a few downed trees, but they were easy to get around.

Once you get down the steep hike it lets out into an amazing spot. View is well worth it. Wouldn’t recommend taking small kids or some dogs. I took my dog and she handled it very well but she’s used to the mountains if you haven’t taken your dog on very steep inclines before do NOT bring your dog. If you have taken them on inclines before they’ll be just fine for you to bring them.

Very pretty hike!! Rapids were very pretty but kinda scary... was a bit sketchy getting across the little river... be careful! Also the steep part is very steep... be prepared to get a little dirty!
