Nature
Shady Valley is an unincorporated community in Johnson County in the northeastern corner of the U.S. state of Tennessee. It is just outside of Cherokee National Forest. Shady Valley is also the name of the valley in which the town is located.Natural historyAfter the Pleistocene ice ages, species and ecosystems that had shifted southward often survived in local refugia. As a result, cold-adapted ecosystems, such as cranberry bogs, remain in Shady Valley, far south of their usual range. Shady Valley once contained an estimated 10,000 acres (40 km²) of boreal cranberry bogs.RecreationThe roads that run in and around the town are popular among motorcyclists since nearby mountains provide nearly 500 curves to navigate. The most popular road for motorcyclists is US-421, which offers many challenging curves.Shady Valley has two small general stores, in addition to four other small businesses, a U.S. Post Office and the Shady Valley Elementary School.The town holds its annual Cranberry Festival the second weekend in October with food, a parade and auctions.
