‪Hiked the trail on 2/20/21. Started at 8:40 am. About ~ a mile in (maybe a bit less), there's a bridge you're supposed to cross to the left over the river. The bridge is out, but just a little bit past it is a makeshift log bridge which was fairly easy to cross. About an hour in you get to a fork where you can choose to go right or left to start the loop section of the trail. We opted to go right, i.e. counterclockwise, as was recommended by many other reviewers. This is also the way that starts with the scary sign saying "this is a minimum 7 hour hike" etc. I also highly recommend going this way first, since the first half of the loop up until you get to Raven's Point is by far the most challenging part of the hike. You traverse many many rock fields throughout the first half of the loop which is fun at first, but as you get fatigued it becomes really cumbersome to focus on keeping your footing. It also slows you way down, it took us ~4 hours to complete the first half of the loop (pace of just over a mile per hour). The final part of the first half of the loop is a steep climb out of the river gorge. Once you get to the top you have the option to do a ~1-mile total there-and-back hike to Raven's Point. We were nervous about losing daylight so decided to skip it, but in retrospect, we easily could have done it. The second half of the loop once you pass Raven's Point is an absolute breeze compared to the first half. We were able to double or triple our pace in this section, which was honestly a huge relief. It took us a total of 8 hours from the time we left the car to the time we got back, and my fitness tracker recorded 13 miles. This included us backtracking the few times we got off-trail as well as brief rest breaks plus three longer 10-20 minute breaks to eat. It can be easy to get off-trail in the rock field section, so make sure to look up often to keep your eye on the next trail marker. We went on a colder day (high temp of 43) which was wonderful once we got warmed up. However, the entire first section of the trail (before the fork) was covered in ice, which really slowed us down and required extra caution. I went with two other friends - all of us are generally fit people, however, none of us have done any recent hiking (or cardio for that matter) so we were essentially going into it untrained. It was still doable for us. This is definitely a challenging and long hike, so I would not recommend it to people who are very out of shape or that can't walk long distances. The rock field section can also be hard on the ankles and knees. I highly recommend wearing sturdy hiking boots or shoes, because your feet will get wet otherwise (my friend somehow managed to do the whole thing in sneakers, but I wouldn't recommend this). The scenery was absolutely gorgeous though, and even though it was challenging at times, I'm super happy I did the trail. Left with some sore feet and calves, but a happy heart :)‬

‪Us Goats (7 women who have been doing grueling trails across the US) loved the Fiery Gizzard. It was definitely challenging, lots of tree roots and unstable terrain but overall a beautiful trail. We left the car at Foster Falls and wonderful Dorothy drove us to the trail head. Navigation was a bit difficult at times (look for white reflector strips on the trees) but an overall rigorous hike (took the dog trail, still difficult). 7 hours from start to finish.‬

‪The scenery is stunning & picture postcard perfect. The trails are well marked (follow the small orange signs on trees), can be very rugged. Watch for large rocks & tree trunks hidden under fallen leaves. It's a fabulous full day workout.‬

‪Went on July 10; started at 8:30 and finished at 4:15. We left a car at foster falls and took other car back to the other end. Nice parking at both ends, bathrooms at both ends. We went in to the day loop to the left and went into the gizzard. We took the dog hole trail. If dog hole is the easiest one I would hate to go thru on the gizzard trail down in the gorge. Here is what to expect: There is no way of knowing where you are at hardly any point on the trail. You know where the dog hole leaves because there is a sign. Then you find a sign that says you are 4.2 I think it said in and 8.2 or so to foster falls. Then you know where you are at again at the small wilds campground. There are 2 places on the trail that are extreme up and down. One has a lot of rock steps up and down but is very difficult and steep. The other bad part is before you climb out near the small wilds campsite. No steps here just down the mountain and cross a foot bridge and right back up the side of the mountain. You have to hold onto tree limbs and rocks to get down and up.
Pros: beautiful, secluded (seen no other hikers either way), challenging, well marked with plenty white blazes, pretty clean trail maybe 5 blow downs total across trail
Cons: you don’t know you location hardly at all, scarce water sources (again we took dog hole)
My advice: be sure you can do this before you try it, carry plenty of fluids, keep pack weight down as low as you can, clothes should be breathable and dry fit , no cotton‬

‪Had a list of places to hike and stumbled upon this trail while deciding on the next day of hiking. This place did not disappoint!‬

‪It was a perfect Fall day for a hike. The trailhead was pretty easy to find. The trail itself it somewhat strenuous so make sure you have sturdy boots with really good traction. There are several areas of the trail where you are navigating over just rocks & today the trail was pretty muddy from the rain. We followed the water the whole time we hiked & there are several water falls along the way. We didn't have enough time to do the whole trail because rain started coming in. People had dogs on the trail, but I'm not sure how they navigate the rocks. I can't wait to go back!!!‬

‪If you haven’t made it to the trail, you are missing out. Came here with a friend and this was instantly my favorite place to hike. It is never boring, with waterfalls at every turn, spurs to explore, rock formations, caves, swimming holes, and the list goes on. We did the Grundy Day Loop but ventured about a mile up the Gizzard past the loop. It gets more strenuous the farther you go, with rock scrambling and some steeper inclines. You are deep in the gorge for most of the loop with steep hillside on either side. Take plenty of water, wear good shoes, and be ready for a great time.‬

‪This place is well marked and kept up. The entrance has picnic tables and restrooms. Unfortunately for me I fell on some slick exposed roots along the creek and had to cut my walk short. I look forward to going back. ‬
