Pulliam Creek Trail

Pulliam Creek Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Green River Game Lands is a beautiful, rugged, natural area of forests, rivers, gorges, and hillsides consisting of more than 10,000 acres along the Green River in Henderson and Polk counties. The area is owned by the state and managed for the primary purpose of wildlife conservation and management, which means that fishing, hunting, and trapping are allowed.

All the trails have a sense of the wild—although there are trailhead signs, the trails are not blazed. One of the best trails for dogs is the Pulliam Creek Trail, and one of the best times to hike is in spring, when it is not yet hot and the wildflowers are blooming in abundance."

Really a pleasant surprise. A true deep woods hike, with vertical forest and a constant grade. Took dog, who enjoyed the fresh water oasis. Tough up the way back... and glad not to deal with the frequent crab-spider webs and untamed pathways on the 2/3 point of the way down.
Off of the road to get there is only a tiny diamond and a miniscule patch of parking lot. The Trail Marker is partly hidden by vegetation:
Otherwise a wonderful instant portal into the wilderness only about 10 miles from downtown Hendersonville.
