Lady's Bluff

a TVA Small Wild Area in Perry County, Tennessee

 

Lady’s Bluff, a TVA Small Wild Area, is a pocket reservation centered around high limestone bluffs on the Tennessee River. The area is characterized by varied ecosystems, including the bluff, the Lick Creek embayment, limestone glades and outcroppings, natural sinks and intermittent spring-fed watercourses.

Lady’s Bluff, a TVA Small Wild Area, is a pocket reservation centered around high limestone bluffs on the Tennessee River. The area is characterized by varied ecosystems, including the bluff, the Lick Creek embayment, limestone glades and outcroppings, natural sinks and intermittent spring-fed watercourses.

Many of the native trees are marked by small signs giving some facts about the species. A 2.7-mile round-trip foot trail winds from the parking area through a typical upland forest, following the Lick Creek Embayment out to the main body of the Tennessee River and then looping to the top of Lady’s Bluff.

Atop of the bluff, you can stand among gnarled old cedars and see the Busselltown Unit of the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge on the opposite bank.  In mid-October, this whole area becomes a landing strip for thousands of migrating ducks and geese making their annual visit to the refuge.

The Tennessee River below Lady’s Bluff passes through “The Narrows,” the most constricted part of the Lower Tennessee. Two barges cannot pass each other through here as they can on other stretches of the river. The Lady’s Bluff Trail is a designated National Recreation Trail.  Access is by foot traffic only; no bicycles, horses or ATVs are allowed.  Exercise caution near cliffs; rappelling and overnight camping are prohibited.
