Unicoi, Tennessee

ABOUT THE TOWN OF UNICOI
The Town of Unicoi is a rural Town located in the mountains of Northeast Tennessee. 
It is believed that the town's name is derived from an Indian word "u'nika" which
means white, fog-like, or fog-draped, which is how the Indians described the mountains
in the area.  The town is 16.3 square miles and is surrounded by the Cherokee
National Forest.  The area is a destination for many hikers, campers, and those
seeking adventure in the outdoors. 
 
The Town of Unicoi and the surrounding areas provide many opportunities for hiking
and becoming one with nature.  The Pinnacle Trail leading up Buffalo Mountain to a 
renovated fire tower is located in the Town of Unicoi, along with other area trails
leading into the mountains and to beautiful waterfalls. 
 
The area has maintained its natural beauty while supporting local businesses and being conveniently located right off of I-26.  Stop by and see our beautiful landscape, visit our local businesses, and experience our friendly town.   You may be one of the many who decides to move to this beautiful area.
