Virgin Falls Trail

Sparta, TN 38585

The trail descends around 900 foot in elevation along a path that in many areas is rocky with uneven footing. Please allow 5 to 9 hours for the hike. And it is recommended to start the hike early in the day, in order to give yourself plenty of daylight. Know your physical ability! And be prepared with water, food, and clothing for the season. Backpackers (overnighters) should use the self -registration book at the trailhead kiosk in order to avoid overcrowding at certain campsites. All hikers should let a family member or a friend know of their hiking plans, and expected time back home. At 1.5 miles there is a cable crossing at Big Laurel Creek: if the creek is flooding, please do not attempt to cross! Overall, please check the forecast before heading out on this hike. - See more at: http://www.tennessee.gov/environment/article/na-na-virgin-falls#sthash.3iSCeddp.dpuf
