Accordian Bluff Hiking Trail

This is a 7.5-mile stretch of scenic trail connectitng Lillydale and Willow Grove Campgrounds, both located approximately 20 miles north of Livingston, Tenn. This natural soil surface trail winds along the shoreline of Dale Hollow Lake, ascends to the ridge-top and then returns back toward the shoreline. The area is thickly forested and contains some old growth timber. Accordian Bluff is ideal for birders and wildflower enthusiasts. Parking is available at each trailhead. NOTICE:  Accordian Bluff Hiking Trail is approximately 7.5 miles long one-way.  It is not a loop trail.The trail is an easy to moderate hike for the majority of the distance. However, there is a steep and difficult hike up to the ridge top. The trail then meanders at a level pace before a steep descent back down near the lake.  Allow approximately 6 to 7 hours for a quick pace hike of the trail. For a more leisurely walk, allow 8 to 10 hours. Please pack out all trash.  The trail crosses onto private property. Please be respectful of these areas and stay on the designated trail.   Click Here for a trail map of Accordian Bluff.
