Area Description

The Tennessee Overhill, named in honor of the Overhill Cherokee settlements that once sat alongside the rivers that wind through this region. The land here is diverse. The high country offers rugged mountains, shady forest coves and mysterious mountaintop balds. Small towns and farms dot the foothills and river valleys.

You won't find high rises here. Our idea of a traffic jam is to slow down to watch a kayaker manhandle a river rapid or to admire a fine team of mules. But there is excitement for those who seek it. Whether you prefer screaming down whitewater rapids, riding a scenic mountain railroad, gliding the clear blue sky, or charging up a ridge on a mountain bike, you will experience adventure here.

If you crave solitude, you can hike a forest trail or listen to the sounds of a creek from a cabin front porch. Two national scenic bysyas and several backroads allow you to experience nature from the comfort of your car or with the wind in your face on a motorcycle.

Small towns provide shopping, dining, and places to spend the night.

Includes Cities/Towns: Athens, Etowah, Sweetwater.

Cultural Activities





There are theaters with live music and plays and art galleries that display the work of local artisans. Head out of town to find wineries, farm stands, and craft shops.

Museums, historic sites, and heritage trails reveal stories of Cherokee Indians, fur traders, settlers, loggers, miners, railroaders, and mill hands - the people who shaped the land and sculpted the cultural legacy of the Tennessee Overhill.
