Hiked to Martha's Pretty Point this morning. Great trail with not many people on the trailer. Great day hike and fantastic overlook.

This trail is fantastic. A great day hike with enough up and down hiking to really give you a workout. Love how remote it is and the camping site across from virgin falls is one I'll definitely be returning for.

Great day hike! All of the falls are really cool, especially Virgin Falls. There are also a number of nice camp sites so it would be a fun overnight. I can imagine this place gets really busy in the summer.

The overlook spur is worth the climb. Great views of the plateau. A popular trail that is crowded on weekends.

One of the most beautiful trails in Middle TN! It's very difficult though.

The trail is pleasant, but if you're adventurous and have a few flashlights, then definitely go into the cave. The lost waterfall is spectacular

Tons of spider webs, recent forest fire so NO wildlife and much of the foliage was destroyed. Good elevation changes and lots of different terrain though. Make sure you find the old Civil War Cemetery! It was the coolest part. The overlook at the end was (mostly) worth the lack of scenery on the way.
