Unicoi County

Hidden Treasures await...

   Unicoi County is located in the mountainous region of northeast Tennessee,

sharing its southern border with western North Carolina. Despite the rugged terrain, the county is easily accessible via a scenic highway that traverses its valley.




   The natural beauty and resources that first brought settles to the region continue to attract modern-day visitors. Woodlands cover two-thirds of the county, and nearly half of the county lies within the Cherokee National Forest. A unique aspect of Unicoi County is its easy access to wilderness areas, where opportunities for outdoor recreation are virtually endless.
   Each season offers unspoiled beauty. In the spring, hillsides are resplendent the cherry, serviceberry, dogwood and redbud blossoms; woodland trails are a carpet of wildflowers. During the summer months, forests greet visitors with a refreshingly cool and hushed environment; mountaintops are clear and breezy. Autumn presents an incomparable display of explosive colors across the land; and a mild winter climate graces the ridges with a dusting of snow, highlighting the dense evergreens.
