Things to Do

Gather your friends or family for a day on the links. Step off your trek after a weekend or day of hiking the Appalachian Trail or one of our many trails. Search out the backwoods of Rocky Fork for an abandoned silver mine. The mother lode of recreation in Unicoi County does not stop there. The many offerings to visitors and residents provide a vibrant crescendo to the symphony of group and individual pastimes enjoyed.

The preserved wonders of the Cherokee National Forest and the recently preserved wilderness of the pristine Rocky Fork area are only the interlude to the many wonders of Unicoi County.

Once off the trail you wander through shops supporting the history and heritage of our lives. Jewelry, baskets, and textiles are only a few of the amazing crafts kept alive by the artisans of our community.

The fluffiest pancakes with sides of artesian bacon and sausage, farm eggs, vegetables, hot coffee and milk greet you as you start your day or leave for another adventure. If your taste wanders to the best, you will find it here. Southern BBQ made with attitude, Asian dinners with chopsticks, sushi, thick steaks and potatoes, pizza and the southern classic, meat and three at an old fashioned drug store counter.

Once finished reloading for your next adventure, rent a canoe, jump in a raft with friends, or go for the ultimate rush and kayak the Nolichucky. Not only will you find some of the most exciting white water experiences in Unicoi County; if your tastes run to the more tranquil the fly fishing is well above most locations in the United States... until you hook one of these whoppers!
