Up to 8.4 miles out and back, easy to moderate for distance
This easily navigated and relatively flat trail moves along the shoreline of Percy Priest and through wooded sections, cedar glades, and other more open areas. Much of the trail is in the open and ticks are abundant this year – so sun protection and insect repellant are recommended. Bring plenty of water and snacks for the trail. Meet at the Couchville Lake parking lot for an 8:15 AM step-off. The trail is easy to follow and hikers who want a shorter hike can drop a car at the far end or turn back as they choose. We’ll be back at the meetup by lunchtime. Alternate date for inclement weather: Friday, June 17th.
