Chapter Hike Schedule

FEB 2019

Sat. Feb 23 - Virgin Falls - DeRossett, TN. 11 miles east of Sparta. 8 miles, strenuous. 900 foot elevation change. Joint hike with the Highland Rim chapter. Tony Jones (Murfreesboro) and Marietta Poteet (Highland Rim) will lead this wonderful winter hike. We will pass three waterfalls: Big Laurel, Sheep Cave and Virgin Falls. Virgin Falls is a 110 foot awesome falls which flows out of one cave and then falls down into another cave. This hike is rated strenuous because of distance, rocky trail and elevation change. Please bring water, snacks, lunch, head lamp and hiking sticks as well as your camera. Wear sturdy hiking boots. There could be a possibility of ice in the winter. Ice makes for a beautiful hike but also adds danger to already unstable terrain, please be aware and prepared. ***Carpool times and trail head meeting times will be given upon registration. .  For more information, or to register, contact Tony Jones at tonjon1968@gmail.com or 615-397-4463
