Poteet Annual Chilly Chili Hike - Marietta
January 25th turned out to be a perfect day for the annual Poteet Chilly Chili hike. It was cold, blustery, and icy - about 20 degrees. 25 people from several different chapters of The Tennessee Trails Association met at Green’s View, part of the Perimeter Trail, in Sewanee, Tennessee to hike 4 miles on Beckwith Point Trail circling around to the Shakerag Trail. It was rocky and quite beautiful with ice formations on the bluffs and at least 2 frozen waterfalls. After the hike we proceeded to the Poteet’s home in Monteagle for Chili and fixin’s and to greet other hikers who were not able to hike with us that day. It was a day enjoyed by many who are veterans of the Chilly hike and by others who were new to the proceedings. If you missed it this year, plan on attending next year.
