About Mountain Goat Trail

Mountain Goat Trail

The Mountain Goat Trail is a 16.8-mile out-and-back trail near Sewanee and Monteagle, Tennessee. It is considered a pretty easy route and would take about 5-6 hours to complete out and back. This trail is great for hiking, running, and walking.  This trail was built on the old Mountain Goat Railway path (more details below).

What is the Mountain Goat Trail?

From the Mountain Goat Trail Alliance Page: 

From 1856 to 1985, the Mountain Goat Railroad carried coal and passengers between Palmer and Cowan in Grundy and Franklin Counties of the Cumberland Plateau. It was named the Mountain Goat because the climb onto the Plateau was one of the steepest railroad ascents in the world.

Now, the Mountain Goat Trail Alliance is seeking to reclaim the path of the railroad. Working with local governments and other interested groups, the Alliance's mission is to turn the old railroad bed into a multiuse recreational path. When finished, the 35-plus-mile trail will connect seven towns in two counties, offering health, recreational, and economic benefits to the area.
