Foster Falls Overlook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Take the Fiery Gizzard Trail to 60-foot Foster Falls, then walk the rim of Little Gizzard Gulf. Vistas open of the deeply carved valley where rock bluffs contrast forested hills. Reach Laurel Branch Overlook, one of many vistas, also passing rain-dependent waterfalls diving into the gorge below. Backtrack, then make a rugged loop below the gorge rim. Reach the large plunge pool and the base of Foster Falls to yet another view of the cascade before finishing the hike."
--Johnny Molloy, Five-Star Trails: Chattanooga (Menasha Ridge Press).
"This beauty of a cataract is located on a TVA small wild area. Foster Falls swoons 60 feet off naked rock into a massive catch pool from which rise sheer walls. Trails allow you to view the waterfall from numerous vantages.Little Gizzard Creek is the mother stream of Foster Falls. The name stuck but the story behind the moniker Foster Falls has been lost to time. The hike en route to your first overlook of Foster Falls is easy, walking the rim of Fiery Gizzard Gulf.Next, view the falls from their base and check out the gigantic plunge pool. You have to go below the rim of Little Gizzard Creek gulf, into irregular yet geologically intriguing terrain. You will pass along the base of sheer clifflines, through boulder jumbles and under rockhouses."
