Bicycle the Mountain Goat Trail

Bicycle or run the newly paved Mountain Goat Trail from Tracy City through Monteagle all the way to Sewanee.

Mountain bike our own bluff trails to Millers point lookout.

Waterfall Tour

image15

The plateau is full of magnificent waterfalls nearby including Foster Falls, Greeter Falls, many small, but beautiful falls along the Fiery Gizzard trail and Fall Creek Falls, to name a few. 

We’re proud to offer a truly private, magnificent waterfall experience right here on the property.  Miller Falls is easily accessible with a short walk down the trail that winds along the bluff ridge from the top to a switchback, below the cliff and to a grotto behind the falls.  

But that’s not all.  There’s a rugged, trail-less hike if you follow the cascading Miller creek below the falls to the next falls, called swallow-tail.  

Let us help you plan a waterfall tour you will never forget.
