Savage Gulf

  • This location is shown only to members

REVISED DETAILS.. The loss of daylight savings time means not likely we'd get to Stage Road Campsite before dark.. certainly not with a 3:00 departure.  Earliest I can meet up would be 2:00.. If anyone else can depart earlier than 3:00 please advise OR if 3:00 was going to be difficult, need to know that too.  Based on a 3:00 departure, would probably be dark when we arrive, so best bet would be to camp at group site... basically right at the Ranger Station (only .1 mile away)  Best case would be Savage Falls Campsite (1.3 from Ranger Station) IF we left at 2:00.. could possible get there before totally dark.. its an easy walk.  If we camp at group site, Saturday would be approx 10.3 miles.. much of which is pretty easy... but very strenuous last 3 miles or so.  Coming out Sunday would 8.5 miles... fairly easy.   Same route planned..  South Rim, Stage Road, Connector to Hobbs site (Sat night)... come out by way of North Rim Trail. Any questions. email me or call me at[masked]-2202.. If anyone is a "beginner" PLEASE let me know.   Kimber

    Ok - I'll try to come earlier for around 1:30... What is the exact location we are meeting initially so I can look it up in Google Maps and see how far it is from Nashville...

      various meet up's use that location and I have parked there before with no issues.. but I understand your concern.. I am open to alternatives.. What part of town are you coming from? I am coming from Brentwood.. my office lot would be fine I'd think.. or I can pick up either or both of you at a different location if it's generally on the way.. Whatever we do, I just want to make sure we're on our way in plenty of time.. I have a little more flexibility on time now now.. just let me know..

      Ok if you've used it before I'm sure it's fine. I work in west end and live by airport so that'd be back tracking. See you all tomorrow!

    Meryl and David.. I've changed the meet time at Target to 2:00.. I will probably be there by 1:30 or 1:45.. so come on a little early if you can and we'll be on our way. My car will hold 3 comfortably and gets good mileage so I don't mind driving.. Mendy.. if all goes according to plan, we'll see you at camp around dusk. .

    I've done these trails many times, tho not in this order. The biggest challenge with the route is the connector trail. Its one of the most grueling trails ever. I don't think the altitude is so bad but the bouldering that makes it harder! It will be a great trip. I'll get there early and setup camp and get a fire going at Savage Falls site. If anyone wants me to take their tent and set it up I'll be in Nashville Wednesday and can pick it up. OR - I am taking a 3 man tent. I'm happy to share so you dont have to set up in the dark. (I hate setting up in the dark!) Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Elevation change of 800 ft is pretty much it... but there's definitely some up and down in the last 3.5 miles on Saturday.. and one steep climb where I think we do a good chunk of 800.. BUT sounds like shouldn't be a problem... just wanted to be sure... David if you and Meryl are in the Nashville area.. let's make it 2:00 or few minutes before if we can swing it and we should be fine to get to Savage Falls.. Looks like Mendy will meet us there. (I'll touch base with you Mendy and will anwer your email directly.) Weekend looks decent so far... some chance for rain Thursday, but looks to be good.. keep your fingers crossed!

    Hi - 2pm meetup is fine on Friday (I can do earlier as well).. I've done several hikes... As long as we're not talking about more than 3000 feet of elevation in each of those segments =)
