Description
Waypoints (0)

This trail has tons of places that you could stop and take a swim. A lot of pretty moss growing on 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.

Great trail, easy to follow. Nice length at 2 miles, and it follows the creek much of the way, making for lots of lovely scenery with the little waterfalls and swimming holes. The path is very narrow in places and has steep dropoffs in places, and sometimes both at the same time. I stopped several times to let others coming the opposite way pass by me. As others have said, lots of tree roots and some rocky bits. Was glad I did not bring our elderly dog. As an older hiker (59) was glad I had on good boots and sticks. Not as scenic as some other trails in South Cumberland SP, but still a lovely day in the woods.

Nice trail, bridge is out for the extra mile but the 2 mile loop is a nice path with some rocky spots. Tons of places to dip in the water, moderately trafficked with kids and dogs.

Nice waterfalls and swimming spots along this trail! Definitely watch your step, I normally don’t fall on hikes and fell multiple times. Nothing happened excepting myself getting embarrassed but be careful!

Super nice trail! Admittedly, lots of roots and rocks, but oh so worth it! Several falls along the way. Lots of shade and mostly near the creeks!

This was a great trail. Fairly crowded at a few of the watering holes but could find quieter areas. Hot summer day so the cool water felt great and there was plenty of shade on the trails. Glad I got there early as limited parking.

Great well maintained completely shaded trail. This is a good one when the weather is brutally hot b/c it feels cooler on the trail and there isn’t any sun beating down on you . Beautiful little waterfalls all along the path. Definitely rocky, lots of roots & steep in some places, Dog friendly but NOT for strollers, toddlers, elderly or if you’re winded easily. Wear hiking shoes that can get wet. Makes a loop and has lots of spots to get in the water. Start with the Grizzard Loop first if you want to get to water quickly. Grundy side is mostly flat and dry. Excellent day trip from Murfressboro!!

HikingBridge outWashed out

The bridge over the river going towards the falls has been washed out you can still get across if the water is not high and you are willing to slid down in to the river to get across. I guess a storm came through a few week ago.

Love this trail! We truly meant to do the Fiery Gizzard loop but made a wrong turn and did the day loop instead. Overall it was beautiful, well maintained, and had lots of great swimming holes and small waterfalls!
