Announcing a new Meetup for Nashville Backpacker Meetup!

What: Backpacking trip to Virgin Falls Pocket wilderness

When: November 15,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Hey everybody!

im going to be heading out to my favorite place in Tennessee, the Virgin Falls Pocket Wilderness near Sparta, TN. We will get an early start on Saturday morning, hike in to the falls, camp for the night, then hike out the next day. A truly spectacular area, with lots of side hikes to Sheep Cave falls, and Big Branch falls, as well as checking out the Caney Fork river. I cant wait to get out there!

Also, I would like to ask for your assistance. Whenever I go there, I bring a kitchen size trash bag, and try to pick up trash, clean out the fire pits, and leave the area better than I found it. Unfortunately, the park tends to get overused, and I have yet to have less than an overflowing trash bag when I hike out! Its definately not mandatory, but if you feel like it I would love to have some extra muscle in taking out some more trash!
