Gorgeous natural wonders! We visited Fiery Gizzard, Natural Bridge & Stone Door. Breathtaking views and waterfalls. The visitor center was super helpful (highway 41 near Tracy City). So much to see and hike...did not even scratch the surface.

Foster Falls Campground: This campground felt deserted in the middle of the week during the summer. Only 2-3 sites were being used. As two females camping with two little kids, it (almost) felt borderline unsafe just because there wasn't any other families around. It is...More
