Hi ladies! I'm so excited to lead this hike through Virgin Falls!

I want to start by saying take heed to the hard trail rating. There are lots of stairs and ups and downs. It took us about 6 hours round trip with several stops along the way. That said, this is definitely at the top of my list of favorite hikes! This hike is beautiful and challenging! Not only do you see the Virgin Falls, but also Big Branch Falls, Big Laurel Falls, Sheep Cave Falls, and a great overlook of the Caney Fork Gulf up on Martha’s Point. 

Bring ample water, snacks/lunch, an adventurous spirit, bug spray, and a camera! Be sure to wear sturdy shoes/hiking boots.

Keep the guys at home for this event, please!
