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 but soon becomes rocks and boulders that you have to walk over to keep going.... More

We hiked the Fiery Gizzard trail yesterday (a group of 4 girls in our 30s). We stopped at the South Cumberland State Park Welcome Center and talked with Cina before our hike. She was wonderful! I highly recommend that you stop and see her there before your hike. While you’re here, you can grab maps and ask questions about the... 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. It has a great canopy of trees, so you won't "cook" on a summer's day.... 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, especially since we hit the trail in the fall with lots of autumn color. This... 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 are steep (I'm 58 and in moderately good shape, but I needed hiking poles to... More

I read all the great reviews on this trail which really helped me to plan well. We camped at the CCC since we didn't have time to hike in any further. The campsites are spacious with a fire ring. Saturday we loaded our stuff back up and made the trek. The falls, swimming holes and rocks are beautiful. All the... More

My father used to live near the area in Sewanee, and I used to go every trip up there, and lo and behold it's on T/A!

A great hike!! Be prepared to stay all day....We hiked 17 miles over a pretty strenous trail. Not for the unfit!! Make sure you take a backpack full of water, trail mix, jerky, etc. Beautiful waterfalls and overlooks that can only be seen on the trail.
