Rating: 4/5 stars
This past week we ventured toward Soddy-Daisy to explore Big Soddy Creek Gulf. Covering 285 acres, there is plenty of great scenery to view and explore.
When we set out, we planned to do an 8-mile, out-and-back hike suggested by the website AllTrails, a resource I use regularly. However, we soon learned that hikers should always double-check their sources, especially when using the internet.
We set out from a parking lot on Back Valley Road, following a wide, gravel path along Big Soddy Creek.
