The River Bluff Trail is a scenic way to see the Clinch River and enjoy a beautiful, forested area. This is a great trail for observing a large variety of wildflowers in a small area including several rare species. Rich pockets of wildflowers are scattered over the hillside, especially yellow trout lilies, celandine poppies, bloodroot, spring beauties and toothwort. It is a 3.2 mile loop with and elevation gain of 538 ft., rated easy. The trail is located on the Norris Dam Reservation on the west side of the dam—across the tailwaters from the Songbird Trail. Norris Dam is about 30 miles north of Knoxville, Tenn., off I-75, exit 122. We will meet at 9 am at Norris Dam Visitor Center, 1810 Norris Freeway, since there is a bathroom and ample parking. Depending on number of people, we may carpool since parking is limited at the trailhead.
