I'm planning about a 10-11 mile loop hike to be split between Sat. and Sun. There are some nice side trails with overlooks and waterfalls and a stunning stretch of white water along the Caney Fork. This is a good beginners weekend as long as the weather isn't too bad. There is not a lot of elevation gained or lost. I went last November and didn't see a soul the whole trip. It's a great secret. The parking areas are near Virgin Falls which is generally over run with hikers almost anytime of year.
Further information will follow when I have the route firmed up. There are two parking areas several miles apart with campsites if anyone wants to spend Friday night. I probably will go up friday night. We will plan on leaving about 8:00 Sat. morning. I will post directions as the date approaches. If you are interested, Sparta chamber of commerce has great maps for $10.
