Virgin Falls Pocket Wilderness Professional Review and Guide
"This is one of the most interesting trails on the South Cumberland, with overlooks and waterfalls, including the dramatic 110-foot Virgin Falls. Here a robust stream emerges from a cave and crashes over a cliff into a pit, sending spray up the hillside before it disappears into the earth. Camping is available beside the Caney Fork River.
Just to the right of the parking area entrance, begin your hike across the plateautop through second-growth timber. At 0.5 mile, a creek on your right leads through a laurel thicket, and at 0.8 mile the trail descends; make a stepping-stone creek crossing and descend again. Watch for a spur trail on the left leading to Big Branch Falls, where the creek skips down a stone staircase.
Continue to descend on the main trail for a short distance, bearing right and then crossing Big Laurel Creek on flat boulders. At a fork at 1.5 miles, a trail left descends along Big Laurel Creek and rejoins the main trail above Big Laurel Falls. The main trail leads to the right, marked with an occasional white blaze."
