DEVILSTEP HOLLOW CAVE AND HEAD OF SEQUATCHIE SPRING Current Projects, Tennessee Parks and Greenways
Devilstep Hollow Cave and the Head of the Sequatchie Spring are natural and historic Tennessee treasures with national significance. This land is important for its unique geology, archeology, history, ecology, and scenery.
Travel up the Sequatchie Valley, along the Sequatchie River, to its extreme northern end. The craggy pine-topped escarpments of the Sequatchie Valley rapidly close in from either side upon the pastoral scene.
The river valley narrows from four miles wide in the south to this gushing mountain stream and the half-mile wide by three mile long canyon, which is Devilstep Hollow. Here is the River’s source, Head of the Sequatchie Spring. Here, also, is Devilstep Hollow Cave, a nationally significant archeological and geological wonder. Beyond, the inspiring Crab Orchard Mountains continue northward and include the national natural landmark that is Grassy Cove.
