Hot Days and Cool Trails

Upper Loop Trail at Fall Creek Falls

A few weekends ago I got the opportunity for an overnight adventure, and I decided to check out the Upper Loop Trail at Fall Creek Falls. The Upper Loop is about 15.5 miles with the current detour, it’s lightly trafficked and rated as moderate…

Paw Paw Trail at Fall Creek Falls

The Paw Paw Trail is a 3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail at Fall Creek Falls State Park near Pikeville, TN that features an incredible waterfall view and a scenic overlook that is breathtaking in its own respect. This is a great day hike,…

Mammoth Cave Historic Tour

Clifty Falls

Back before the promotion and move to Texas we hit the creek bed trail at Clifty Falls in Indiana. This trail literally follows the creek bed from the terminus all the way to the waterfall. The waterfall is technically off limits because of the…
