Tennessee River Trail Byway


The Tennessee River Trail is the state’s longest scenic byway, at 440 miles, and meanders along winding 2-lane roads on both banks of the Tennessee River. The route offers roadside serene views of countryside and connects visitors to the waterway in multiple locations. Significant attractions along the route include Civil War battlefields at Ft. Donelson and Shiloh, stories of the TVA and industrialization at Johnsonville State Historic Site, and the conservation at several wildlife management areas. The Tennessee River Trail also connects to the Woodlands Trace and Natchez Trace National Scenic Byways.
