Whether atop the bluff overlooking a forested landscape that extends to the horizon or beneath towering sandstone cliffs, you don’t want to miss this fall excursion into to Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area.  We’ll begin our journey at the established overlook trail with a moderate 1-mile hike and then drop below the Plateau Escarpment to access an additional 3-mile strenuous trail.

With experience conducting rare plant surveys and vegetation sampling in the region, Roger McCoy will share his knowledge about the local flora, rare species, and plant communities known from the upper Cumberland Plateau.  We’ll also walk past locations of ongoing archeological studies to document the pre-European history of Pogue Creek Canyon and the surrounding area.  Participants will be rewarded with breathtaking overlooks, towering sandstone bluffs, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Pogue Creek Falls.

The trail system includes steep, rocky grades, and we’ll descend ladders to access below the Plateau escarpment.  Therefore, those attending this excursion should have experience and a fitness level to hike in rugged terrain.

Wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring plenty of water and snacks as we’ll enjoy a picnic lunch while in the canyon.  Pets are not permitted during this guided hike.

Adjacent Pickett State Park has camping and cabins if interested in overnight accommodations.
