SUNDAY DAY HIKE: VIRGIN FALLS
Sunday, June 28th
THIS TRIP HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO MINIMAL REGISTRATION.
While at Rock Island, take a short drive to one of the most lovely falls in Tennessee to Virgin Falls. We will hike the full 8 miles or you can hike in as far as you can, rest at one of the smaller falls along the way then hike out with us. Those not going to Rock Island welcome too!
The centerpiece of this magnificent hike is Virgin Falls, which is formed by an underground stream that emerges from a cave and drops over a 110-foot cliff before disappearing into a sink. There are several more stunning waterfalls and caves along the way to Virgin Falls. This is a spectacular hike in Spring, when the water is high.
