Stinging Fork Falls to Piney River TNPS/TCWP

May 11

Corydalis flavula

We will caravan from the Exxon to the Lower Piney River Trailhead to start a shuttle leaving some cars there. We will then carpool to the Stinging Fork Falls Trailhead. From there we hike back to the Piney River Trailhead. This section of the Cumberland Trail was completed in fall 2018. What spring flowers we will see is hard to predict. The route is definitely scenic. Total walking distance will be about 6 miles. The trail is up and down with many steps.

Alternatives: People are welcome to head back early to the Stinging Falls Fork Trailhead. They will need a car there or will have to wait until the afternoon when the shuttle is completed. With this alternative, you could drive back from the Stinging Fork Trailhead to the Piney River Trail Head and walk in along the flat trail by Soak Creek to meet the rest of the group as they reach Soak Creek.
