TVA Nature Loop

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

TVA Nature Loop in northwestern Alabama offers a short connection between Sheffield on the south side of the Tennessee River and Florence on the river’s north bank. The paved trail travels through a pleasantly wooded area and offers spectacular views as it crosses the river on the Old Railroad Bridge, spanning more than 1,500 feet.

Although the trail has a linear north-south course, it is considered a loop because there is no outlet at its northern end, so travelers have to turn around and head back the way they came at trail’s end.

Parking and Trail Access

A trail parking lot is located at the southern end of the trail on Ashe Boulevard.
