Make the most of your next visit to Tennessee – head out for an exceptional adventure filled with hikes, rock skippin', and so much more; it's all found within the Cherokee National Forest. Head to the eastern region of Tennessee and plan for full days of exploring this massive forest. 

In total, the Cherokee National Forest spans 655,598 acres, and it was established in 1920. Within the Cherokee National Forest you'll find the Ocoee River which, incidentally, hosted many of the whitewater events during the 1996 Summer Olympics.
