Ijams Nature Center Loop

Ijams Nature Center Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This hike uses a series of trails to make a pair of loops at Ijams. Leave the worth-a-visit visitor center and raptor enclosure and bisect wooded hills to reach Mead's Quarry.

Here, you circle around the lake left over after marble mining operations ceased. The circuit makes a big climb above the quarry, reaching a pair of overlooks. It then heads toward the Tennessee River, making a side trip to Toll Creek, then explores a bluff-side boardwalk over the river. See Maude Moore's Cave; pass by a wildflower-rich hillside near Otter Island, then climb back to the nature center."
