There's much to explore in the Monteagle and Sewanee area. Our smartphones tell us to the quickest routes to take to get there, but wouldn't it be nice if there was an option to take us on the prettiest route? Ignore your urge to use your smartphone's GPS and take the time to travel from Pelham up the winding U.S. Route 41 from The Caverns up to Monteagle.
Long before Interstate 24 this section of road was a part of the "Dixie Highway" and was the main thoroughfare stretching all the way to Miami, but no need to go that far. Take in the pleasant and peaceful Pelham Valley farmland, then head up the mountain and check out some of these great things to do.
