Join one of our free, naturalist-led hikes for a chance to see dozens of flower species native to East Tennessee as they come into bloom.

We’ll hike at Bays Mountain Park and Laurel Run Park on the dates listed below. The varieties of flowers can be quite different at each park because of the difference in elevation. These hikes are free to the public and do not require registration. Expect to hike for about an hour and a half. Depending on what’s blooming, we may cover two to three miles. All hikes begin at 10 a.m. Please dress for the weather!
