Love this place. Especially to get to the Blue Hole. Pack a lunch and enjoy the lovely sights of Grundy Forest.

Rocky and challenging. Beautiful waterfalls. Could be marked better. Watch your time so you can be out before dark. We were there the week before Thanksgiving and due to the steep topography the shadows were already getting long by mid-afternoon. We didn’t make it to...More

We headed out on Memorial Day. We had stopped at the state park visitor center and spoken to a ranger before starting the trail and they had warned us that the storm from the prior Saturday had most likely knocked down trees and poured rain...More

Great hiking and backpacking trail. Moderate to strenuous hike, 12 to 13 miles from Grundy Forest to Foster Falls. Take the spur trails at big fiery gizzard creek to see chimney falls and sycamore falls! Overnight camp at ravens point.

We hiked down to Foster Falls and from there, with our dog, hiked the Fiery Gizzard trail from Foster Falls. When they say this trail is challenging, they are not kidding. This trail starts off medium and gets harder. It is a typical dirt trail...More

Head a little ways outside of Chattanooga, and you'll find the Fiery Gizzard Trail. It is well worth the hike to see all the waterfalls along the way. It is not a highly traveled trail, so you just might have most of it to yourself....More

We just hiked this trail with friends while staying at the CCC campground. We went up to Raven Point, which ended up making our entire day an 11 mile round trip hike that is not for the faint of heart. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous,...More

Even if you don't have time to hike very far, this is worth a visit. The trail starts to descend almost immediately from the parking lot, and you are next to the stream within 10 minutes. Trail is in very good shape, parts of it...More
