Driving Directions to
Hiwassee State Wildlife Refuge

The Hiwassee State Wildlife Refuge is between the towns of Dayton and Cleveland Tennessee. To reach the refuge from I-75 take exit number 25 onto Highway 60 and go north on 60 toward Dayton passing through the small town of Birchwood. Brown signs will lead you east (right) on to Shadden Road, then right on to Blythe Ferry Lane, and left onto Priddy Road. Priddy Road is a one lane road with two-way traffic, so drive with caution as you go to the parking area and gazebo.

Liz from Operation Migration reminds everyone: "Please remember the day's weather determines our ability to fly, so, regardless of the day, if you plan on going to view a take-off, keep in mind it may or may not happen. To see any 'hoped for' departure we suggest you be on site by 6:45am."
