Chilly Chili Hike 2015 - Sara
There were around 40 hikers at the Poteet’s annual Chilly Chili hike January 24. Snow had fallen the night but the roads were clear. The hike was beautiful in the snow with a stream along the trail and views of Lost Cove. This is a new trail that’s not part of the Perimeter Trail, but does cross over the Perimeter Trail. We parked in a large parking lot across from Shenigans and walked a little way to the trailhead. We did this because there’s limited parking at the actual trailhead. After the hike, we went to the Poteet’s house in Monteagle for a delicious chili lunch. Hikers attending from our chapter were Ann Jacobs, Sara Pollard, Nabil Wakid, Jennifer Zahn, and guests Elizabeth Fahey, Javed Rizvi, and Cassady Seward. Chris King from Smyrna and her husband Charles met us at the trailhead. PERFECT day for a hike and to see SNOW.
