“This is the Perimeter Loop at Sewanee starting at the Crosby Lane parking lot.”
— Adopt These Trails!
This is a majority of the perimeter loop at Sewanee TN. This trail is mostly singletrack with some logging service road sections. There are several places of exposure to the edge of the plateau. Most of the climbs are short and bursty with technical obstacles like rocks and logs to ride over on them. There are several different starting locations.
Need to Know
cell signal is sketchy at best. tmobile has no signal. verizon has barely any signal. ATT was usable. There's also not very many places to eat in Sewanee. Shenanigans is in the city right next to Woody's bike shop. For most other dining, you'll need to go closer to the interstate.
This trail is a mix of singletrack and fireroads. There are several start points, but most people seem to start at the end of Crosby Lane, southeast of Lake Cheston. From here, you'll go CW around the lake and turn left onto Lake Cheston Drive. To ride the trail CCW, turn right onto Breakfield road and then immediately turn left onto a sidewalk. Turn left to go up past the water tower. To ride the trail CW, turn left at Breakfield road instead of right. Then take the second left onto Girault Jones Drive. This will end into a culdesac that connects to the trail.
There are sporadic blue markings on the trees to blaze the trail, but it's best to have an offline copy of the map with you. the map available at arcgis.sewanee.edu/LALmaps/…
has gps data encoded into it. you can use the avenza maps application to view exactly where you are offline. I don't currently know how to export this data into mtb project.
