Bledsoe County has some of the world's best outdoor recreation. Nature has divided the county into three distinct divisions: Sequatchie Valley, Cumberland Plateau and Walden Ridge. Each offers a variety of terrain, scenery and activities. Bledsoe County is the gateway to Fall Creek Falls State Park, Tennessee's largest and most visited state park. Throughout the park's 26,000 acres you can find cascades, gorges, waterfalls and pockets of virgin hardwood. Fall Creek Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the Eastern United States.
Bledsoe, the oldest and northernmost county in the Sequatchie Valley, is full of history. It was established in 1807 and was settled by several Revolutionary War Veterans. The Trail of Tears came through the county, and several historic buildings are still standing. Bledsoe County Veteran's Park, located on Main Street in Pikeville, honors the service men and women in the area who have served our country since World War I.
Motorcyclists come to Bledsoe County to enjoy the scenic route along Highways 30 and 127. Travel a section of the route or drive the entire loop, known as the Tennessee Legend, which has world-class scenery, including mountains, valleys, rivers and canyons.
