Montreat Perimeter Hike. This hike will meet at the Montreat Gate parking lot. The hikers will ascend the steepest of the Montreat Trails, Stomping Knob, to access the West Ridge. From here the hike steadily ascends to the top of the valley, summiting 5 of the Seven Sisters. From Greybeard Mountain the hike will make its way down the switchbacks toward Pot Cove Gap. At this point there will be an optional opt out, and the rest of the group will then get onto the East Ridge Trail, making its way around the perimeter, then down the Rainbow Mountain Trail.
This hike is the most strenuous hike of the Montreat Valley and is over 16 miles in length, but worth the accomplishment.
