Meeting Time: 7:30 AM Meeting Place: Behind the IHOP and Steak 'n Shake Estimated Drive Time: 1.5 hours (plus a car shuttle) Hike Distance: 12-13 miles Estimated Hike Time: 7 hours Difficulty: Very Strenuous The Fiery Gizzard trail is a perennial favorite of the Nashville Hiking Meetup. This beautiful trail contains the best features of Tennessee hiking: a rocky gorge, rapids and waterfalls, and a gorgeous high-cliff lookout with expansive views of a forested gorge. The scenery cannot be beat on this one, and it always earns rave reviews from hikers. This is a Very strenuous 12-13 mile through hike that requires a shuttle. We arrive at the trailhead at 9:00, drop all hikers and shuttle all the vehicles to the Foster Falls trailhead. We should be on the trail by 9:45 and hopefully finished by 4:30. Please be prepared for this long hike with plenty of water. Rain gear may be required as scattered showers are possible.
