Bridal Veil Falls
March 28 @ 8:30 am – 2:00 pm
Tuesday March 28 —Sewanee Perimeter Trail: Bridal Veil Falls, moderate, 4.6 miles, 700’ elevation gain. This hike is the section of the Sewanee Perimeter trail from the Memorial Cross to Bridal Veil Falls. The elevation gain is mostly on the way back to the parking lot. The hike starts with a stunning view of the valley below and continues to one of the most scenic sections of the perimeter, alternating between a series of steep slopes and flat stretches. Due to the beauty and quiet, it will be easy to believe we are in a fairy tale. Since we are crossing several bridges over the creek, be on the lookout for trolls. On the trail we will pass large sandstone blocks and boulders that long ago broke from the bluffs above us. As we near the falls we will hike a short distance off the plateau where a creek appears from the side of the mountain, cascades down a limestone cliff for 25 feet or more, and then disappears into a sinkhole. Check the weather forecast and put on appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring snacks and/or lunch along with more water than you think you need; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, sunscreen, and insect repellent as needed. Carpooling will be at the parking lot just after the LaQuinta Inn off I-24, Exit 175 at 8:30 am ET. https://bit.ly/3QITAD4 Please register with hike leader Delores Ladd, 214-422-7206 or email@example.com.
