“Damn, that fiery gizzard!” As legend has it, these were the words of Tennessee’s native son, Davy Crockett, as he set up for camp on Jasper Mountain during his travel through the ridges and valleys of the Cumberland Plateau. On a mild summer evening over his campfire, Crockett roasted a fresh turkey gizzard but took his first bite before it had cooled off causing him to burn his tongue. He whipped the food out of his mouth, threw it on the valley floor, and yelled, “Damn, that fiery gizzard!” This deep, sheltered cove on the western edge of Jasper Mountain has been called the Fiery Gizzard ever since.
Its own private sanctuary and mountain paradise, Blue Rock is truly a one of a kind parcel consisting of 182+/- acres in all and an astounding 3,506 ft of brow frontage! This is Tennessee’s version of beachfront property. Blue Rock is elevated approximately 2,000 ft providing a platform for majestic westward and sunset views through the Sequatchie Valley and into the nearby mountains.
The sheer limestone bluff gives way to the flat plateau of gently rolling land featuring 40 mile views and varied terrain without the high building costs associated with typical mountain property. Sounds from the leaves of various hardwoods and the flowing of a nearby waterfall on the property, it’s hard to imagine a more peaceful, serene piece of property. With two convenient points of access from both the northern side of the mountain off US-41 and on the southern face off I-24, the fortunate owner of a property at Blue Rock estates can enjoy the remote privacy without the hassle of being too far removed from everyday needs.
Davy Crockett would never forget his trip through this exact property now known as Blue Rock and neither will you. Come set up your own private shelter and engulf yourself with nature’s historic surroundings.
