HIKING TRAILS        

A myriad of hiking trails crosses and surrounds Skymont's 2,400 acres.

PERIMETER TRAIL

Skymont Scout Reservation is wealthy in the natural beauty of the Tennessee Cumberland Plateau.  Mountain springs, creeks, brooks, rock formations and overlooks surround the reservation.  Faint evidence of ancient Native American visits exists on the southeastern perimeter, and nearby are the archaeological remains of a 19th century stagecoach station.

The trail around Skymont’s perimeter is a 12-mile hike along the edge of the plateau.  Troops may elect to hike portions of the trail and see EAGLE’S BLUFF and the OVERLOOK.

Troops wishing to hike sections of the trail during summer camp should contact the Program Director.

The trail guide for the Skymont Scout Reservation is available as a PDF document and copies are available in the Admin Building during summer camp season.
