Welcome to Tennessee Overhill

So named because it was home to the Cherokee settlements that rested on the western slopes of the Appalachian Mountains-Overhill from the Lower Cherokee settlements.  This area has long been a destination for travelers, traders & explorers.  Today’s visitors will find a place rich in cultural heritage & scenic beauty – a place of forests, rivers, mountains, small towns & unique attractions.

“The Magic of Fall Foliage in the Overhill”

The Fall season in Southeast Tennessee & the Cherokee National Forest is an unbearably beautiful All-American time & place.  Yellow, gold & scarlet-covered hills slope down to green meadows & fields of wheat in harvest.  The autumn sun brightens the white church steeples.  Plump pumpkins appear in orange pyramids outside stores & crossroads. Let’s get outside & enjoy the outdoor fun offered in the Tennessee Overhill. See it your way, by rail, trail, bike or glider.
