Just a sample of the things to do includes hiking in the Cherokee National Forest, fishing for trout on the Tellico and North Rivers, kayaking Baby Falls, panning for gold on Coker Creek, and enjoying the spectacular views on the Cherohala Skyway. But that's not all, there is also white water rafting, canoeing, picnicking, and just enjoying the country backroads and beautiful mountain scenery. The "Waters of Many Steps," a seven-stair-step waterfalls on Coker Creek in the Cherokee National Forest is a must see.

Tellico Plains Weather & Climate

Southeastern Tennessee has a temperate climate with four seasons. Winters are generally short and mild, and summers are warm and humid, with cooler temperatures in the high mountain regions. Rain is common year round. The average annual snowfall for the state is 12 inches. Spring comes in early March with warmer weather and flowering trees and shrubs. Summer arrives full force in the region by mid May, bringing warm weather and higher humidity. The mountains of eastern Tennessee are a great place to escape the hot summer temperatures as the higher elevation cools the air slightly. Fall brings mild days and crisp evenings, along with brilliant foliage colors. Mid to late October is a good time to visit the region to experience the fall color change. Severe weather, such as tornadoes or blizzards, is rare in the state of Tennessee.
