River Bluff Trail

  Tuesday, March 31, 2009. River Bluff Trail, Norris Dam State Park, TN.

People who've hiked the trail along the Clinch River just downstream of Norris Dam could tell you about how good this place is for spring wildflowers. 3. 2 miles of trail with a nice blend of flat easy walking along the river coupled with a bit of climbing and a ridgeline hike back to the car makes for a good workout--but one you'll hardly notice due to the grand views of flowers
    and scenery.

Don't give up when you first start this trail because you'll see only a few flowers along the first 1/2 mile. Beyond that, you'll think you've entered some kind of wildflower garden. Honest--the displays are that

Says Al Smith

Tennessee is a great outdoors state. River Bluff Trail is a long drive away from La Follette but hiking it is great fun any time. Gotta get out of the city man, and River Bluff Trail in Anderson County, Tennessee
is the outdoors at it's best. In the Cumberland Plateau Mountains there are many great hiking trails, it's a great hiking area.
Get your heart pumping on the perfect whitewater of Cumberland River - Clear Fork, and swing by Cove Creek it's a delightful site to have a look at.
