Buck Island trail is located on TVA’s Guntersville reservoir in north eastern Alabama.
Several years ago, a tornado tore across Buck Island and led to the closure of this trail until the downfall could be cleared away. Until the trail has had time to reestablish itself, be careful walking as the surface is uneven. This area has lots of rotting logs, which are great habitat for beetles, centipedes and worms as wells as ferns, mosses and tree seedlings. Stop and listen frequently as you hike the trail; songbirds and frogs thrive here.
This trail is behind the Guntersville Municipal Airport, just minutes north of Guntersville, Alabama, off Hwy. 79. Note: Trail is listed as closed for repairs. Please confirm before visiting.
