Hiking Fiery Gizzard Trail & Lodge Outlet

This day trip to southern Tennessee takes us just over the border to one of the most popular hiking trails in Tennessee. There are over a dozen waterfalls along the Fiery Gizzard River in Tennessee and the rock formations are unforgettable. About an hour and thirty minutes drive from Huntsville and we are in some Appalachian country that is enviable.

We will also be enjoying lunch at the Top of the Rock Restaurant & Brewery will incredible views and food as well. Then we are off to the Lodge Factory Outlet store in South Pittsburg.

Come join me for a healthy, incredible day with a little bit of shopping too!

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: This hike can be somewhat rocky near the creekbed boots and poles and some hiking experience is needed.


If you test positive or exhibit symptoms of COVID prior to any day trip, it is 100% refundable. Please be considerate and wear your mask in the car with others. If you would like to drive yourself, please coordinate with me.

Let’s have some local, safe adventures!
