Overview

It's almost guaranteed you'll see more cows than cars on this supported tour, which starts in Tellico Plains and winds its way through fields and forests toward third-generation Philpott Farm in the fertile farmlands of the central Tennessee Overhill and  in and around Tellico Plains. We'll stop at for a picnic lunch at Coltharp Community Center, the historic one-room schoolhouse this ride will help raise funds to preserve.



On the way back, stop for a farm-fresh snack at Tellico Community Farmers Market as we make our way through this lush rural farming region.
