Possum Gorge - Sara
Thirteen hikers and Ruby the dog had perfect weather for our 7 miles hike on the Possum Gorge segment of the Cumberland Trail. We met at the Retro Hughes Road trailhead in Bakewell and drove a short distance to start our hike at the Possum Creek Bridge construction entrance. We had lunch below the Little Possum Creek waterfall and hiked back to the Retro Hughes Road trailhead.
We saw lots of poison ivy, a coyote, black snake and beautiful ferns growing along the trail. Hikers from the Murfreesboro area were Roy Duncan, Ann Jacobs, Sara Pollard, Judith Rusciolelli, and Jan Safavi. Hikers who met us at the trailhead were Jan Agee, Carol Deakins, Don Deakins, Jane Ellett, Gary Kimbrell, Brandy Selman, Judy and TC Varner.
