Welcome!  Bays Mountain Park is a 3500 acre nature preserve that has a little bit of something for everyone. The park features a Nature Center, Animal Enclosures, a Herpetarium, a Raptor Center, a Farmstead Museum, and a state of the art Planetarium Theater.  The Nature Center houses exhibits exploring everything from Natural History to Space Exploration.  Various Animal Enclosures house Deer, Bobcats, Otters, Raccoons, Wolves, and Turtles.  The Herpetarium displays an array of reptiles and amphibians, and the Raptor Center houses the birds of prey, such as hawks, owls, and falcons.  The Farmstead Museum displays antique paraphernalia used by our Tennessee predecessors, such as farm and household tools and machinery.  Along with over 25 miles of beautiful trails and gorgeous northeastern Tennessee mountaintop scenery, Bays Mountain Park contains over 60 kinds of flowers during the spring.  And during the fall, the Fall Leaf Tour showcases the vibrant colors of our Appalachian mountains.  Plus during the winter, Bays Mountain Park opens its trails to skiers for a brisk cross country experience.  So, don’t miss out.  Bays Mountain has something for everyone and is ready to let you in on the fun.
