Runner Notes

Park at the visitors center on Clarksville Rd. for warm, clean restrooms open year round. There are restrooms every few miles along the trail, but they are closed in the winter, except for a vault-type at Furnas Shores boat ramp.

Description

This section of the Perimeter Trail picks up off of SR 73. You'll follow it to the Furnas Shores boat ramp. Take the ramp up to the main access road. The trail re-enters the woods across the road from the restroom.

The remaining trail is rolling and takes you into several valleys and along some sweepers above the lake shore. Travel across the parking lot for Hopewell Lodge and back into the woods. This section has some of the most technical trail of the run. At one point you'll dump out onto another abandoned road; follow the arrows painted on the pavement. This is the home stretch and after a creek crossing, you'll be back at the visitors center. If you need to cool down and stretch, there is a nice overlook trail nearby.
