Day Hike to Scott's Gulf
Sunday, March 30th
Team Green is partnering with the Nashville Hiking Meetup for a day hike to Scott’s Gulf for a 8-10 mile hike, a 10,000-acre gift to the citizens of Tennessee from Bridgestone/Firestone. Called “The Grand Canyon of the Cumberland’s” by an early 19th Century traveler, the area is entrusted to the Tennessee Wildlife Management Agency (TWRA) as a Wildlife Management Area and is recognized as a natural treasure for its uniqueness and diversity. The 26 miles of moderate to difficult trails feature rolling hills, waterfalls, deep gorges, rocky hillsides, wildflowers, oak, hickory and pine forest, creeks, and river pools.

What to Bring
Bring gas money for your driver, lunch, water, snacks, layered clothing matched for the weather, a change of clothes for the ride home if preferred and your camera! More hiking route details to come, but we’ll plan on an 8 to 10 mile trek. Your dog on a leash is welcomed. If you own hiking poles, bring them.
Plan on crossing several creeks during the hike so be sure to wear water resistant hiking boots/shoes. Warning: you may get wet! It’s important that you have good balance as we will hike across slick rocks in these creeks.
The Hiking Meet-Up group is the leader of this hike. Team Greeners need to sign up for the Hiking Meetup Group (free!) in order to RSVP for this trip at REGISTER HERE. If you have any questions, please contact hike leader Kelly Stewart
Meet at the Kroger in Hermitage across from Summit Medical Center off Old Hickory Blvd at 8am and carpool with your hiking buddies the 95 miles to the Polly Branch Falls Trailhead.
If you plan on meeting us at the trailhead, travel I-40 east from Nashville toward Knoxville, take the Sparta-Cookeville Exit (Exit #287/Hwy. 136) and go south approximately 2 miles and connect with Hwy. 111S. Stay south on Hwy. 111 to the Sparta-Smithville Exit (Hwy. 70) which is just past McDonalds and Wal-Mart. Turn left (east) onto Hwy. 70, go through Sparta, past the Courthouse and up the plateau past the Rock House Historic Site and Scenic Overlook. About one mile past the Bondecroft School turn right onto Eastland Road at Bondecroft Headstart Village and travel approximately 5.7 miles to the junction with Scott’s Gulf Road (GPS: N35 52.657 W85 17.206). Turn right at the sign for Scott’s Gulf and travel about two miles to the Polly Branch Falls Trailhead parking area on your left.
