Short video of Big Fork, Signal Mountain, TN

Here is a short video of our day at Big Fork. There are alot of rocks!!!! We had a ball. But, next time, we'll know to take someone else or a group with us. Got kinda hairy a couple of times. This video is of some smaller rocks that didn't prove to be to much trouble. The sway bars are still connected and no lockers.

Used to ride there all the time. Love the waterfall and Vauhn and of course the ledges on the left at the playground.

I got that Jeep thing now it hurts when I pee.

If you head this way, give me a call or email. The video doesn't do Big Fork justice. From expert (well, what I would consider expert) to moderate. There are a ton of rocks, some mud and, of course, alot of good ole boy beer cans and bottles. Don't know why they can't take it with them when they leave.


If you're bad to leave your trash behind, don't ***** when they close your trail down.

Waterfall???? Didn't see the waterfall. As dry as it's been, prolly dried up. Was hard pressed to find any mud.
And didn't meet Vauhn either.

Vauhn is a ledge on the creekbed that goes up by the playground and the waterfall is a ways on back and a bunch of ledges that you can't see the top from the bottom. It's near door dinger.

Nice names, now if I can just get someone to show us where they are. And I still haven't seen a creek. Saw a creek bed, looked like it hadn't had water in a couple years.
When we go in, we go between the two big houses. The other end is all but closed. Looks like they're digging a quarry. But all the trails are still open for now.

Another way is to sit on the pot, reach down and grip the bowl with both hands, and push against the floor with your feet.

We have been going up on Sundays. Either there or Edwards Point. Edwards is pretty easy but has some beautiful overlooks. A couple decent holes and a few rocks. It's just shorter than going to Aetna. Really been wanting to go to Soddy Mountain.

We usually go in on the Suck Creek side because I don't like having to drive past all of Signal Mountain's finest. Once I get mine back together, hopefully in about 2 weeks, we are planning a trip up there with some of the locals and I'll let you know so you can see some of the big rocks and hidden lines.

We have went in on that side too. But now they have alot of it gated off, looks like a quarry. And we will be in PA in 2 weeks.
