This trail is located in Grundy Forest State Natural Area at South Cumberland State Park. The Firey Gizzard trail starts out rocky and a bit steep descending into the canyon. It is very rocky here and is very wet in places making it somewhat slippery. It follows the river for the first mile or so passing many beautiful Cascades and waterfalls. The Dog Hole trail turns off Firey Gizzard ascending to the rim of the canyon. From the trailhead to this point can be wet and VERY slippery. Use caution. Once on the rim the Dog Hole trail is a moderate trail winding through a forest setting with a couple of outcrops along the way offering a view of the canyon. The Dog Hole Trail merges with Firey Gizzard again after 2.5 miles. There is a 0.5 mile spur trail that goes out to Raven's Point. if you go all that way you should definitely take in the point.
