Hike with Mike - Perimeter Trail/Sewanee

    The trails around Sewanee are so pretty. I bet we will see wildflowers starting to bloom. Will we do Shakerag Hollow? I am glad to do this hike with a group since so there are so many trail junctures. I hope to carpool with someone- either as a driver or a rider. Not sure if I will have dinner afterwards. It depends on when we finish. I have to wake up really early on Monday. . . a teacher.

    Okay, thank you, I'm probably going to do more local Nashville hikes because I like to carpool otherwise

      If you left right after the hike, perhaps by 4:30-5:00 PM. Usually, we have a late lunch/early dinner before leaving Sewanee, getting us back after 6:00 PM.
