Fall Certificate Hike

September 18 @ 9:00 am

Sewanee Perimeter Trail is a 21.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Sewanee, Tennessee that features beautiful wildflowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers several activity options and is best used from April thru October. 

I am grateful to Janeth McKendrick because Janeth, Mary Priestley, Rev. Monna Mayhall and Maryetta Poteet have worked very hard on setting up the four hikes to make up our Perimeter Trail hike this Fall.  They have broken the hike into four sections, and they have even outlined some shuttles for us so that we will not have to double back and may decrease the mileage shown.  

The four dates they have planned will be September 18 and 25, October 2 and 30.

  • Leg one will be Roark’s Cove – Solomon’s Temple (5.4 miles).
  • Leg two will be Lake Cheston – Cross – Roark’s Cove (7.4 miles).
  • Leg three will be Solomon’s Temple – Armfield – King’s Farm (8.5 miles)
  • Leg four will be Lake Cheston – King’s Farm – Parallel Trail – Lake Cheston (6.8 miles).  

There may be some changes in the hiking order (i.e. Leg two may become Leg one), but this will give you some idea.  One of the leaders purportedly has the code we need, so mileage may change some because we may not have to double back on our hiking.
