Santeetlah Creek / Huckleberry Knob

The centerpiece of the Santeetlah Headwaters area is the 5,500-foot Huckleberry Knob, the tallest mountain in the Unicoi Range and the source of the clear, bold trout waters of Santeetlah Creek. Nearby are Santeetlah Bluffs, recognized as a special area of virgin forest sheltering Wright Creek Falls, an impressive 80’ drop. The Santeetlah Headwaters include some of the largest trees and most important old-growth forests in the East.
