Bluebell Island is located on the Elk River and was purchased by SCRLT
in order to protect its unque natural features for posterity. The island
is regionally famous for its plethora of wildflowers, especially Virginia Bluebells.
Join SCRLT for the hike to this wild and beautiful island, held annually on the
fourth Saturday of March. Meet at 10:00 a.m. at the gated entrance to the
Tyson Foods parking lot on TN-50/US 64 W, just south of exit 127 off I-24 near
the bridge over the Elk River, about two miles West of I-24.
If the river is not too high, we usually walk across a fallen log to get to the island.
Heavy rains in the days preceding the hike will cause this route to become impassable.
We do not hike if lightning is imminent. Everyone is welcome - you do not need to be
a member to attend the hike.
