#1 - Fiery Gizzard Trail to Raven's Point
South Cumberland State Park
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(752)
Length: 9.6 mi • Est. 4 h 42 m
Note: As of 5/29/2020, the bridge on the Fiery Gizzard is washed out. The trail is open to cross at your own risk, but If the water is high the trail is closed to through hikers. For more information, please see https://tnstateparks.com/parks/south-cumberland You should plan on doing the trail counter-clockwise. This will put you through the Fiery Gizzard rock and boulder fields while you are fresh. You will still have a very steep climb out to the Dog Hole trail, but then it is only a short distance out to Raven point. The return trip on the Dog Hole trail is very moderate with a fairly easy descent back down to the Fiery Gizzard trail. From there you have a bit of rock field back to the Grundy Day loop, but then the trail is moderate back to the parking area at the trailhead. This is a very difficult trail - be prepared and bring plenty of water. Although dogs are allowed to use this trail, users have reported that the rock scrambling can be quite difficult for them. This trail located in Grundy Forest State Natural Area at South Cumberland State Park offers spectacular views of rock formations, cascading streams, waterfalls, rocky gorges, panoramic overlooks and lush woodland.Show more

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.Show more

For more information, please see https://tnstateparks.com/parks/south-cumberland 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.
