Clinch River Artisan Trail
Flowing through the rolling hills of Tazewell County into the green pastures of Russell County, the Clinch River is one of the world's most biologically diverse waterways. Our river and surrounding mountains feed the imagination of artists and artisans, storytellers and musicians. It's easy to see why so many artists find inspiration here. You'll find outdoor murals and artistic expressive brick sculpture walls that depict coal mining and the storytelling traditions of “Jack Tales.” Retrace the footsteps of pioneers from the late 1700’s through museum re-enactments. Move your feet to traditional mountain tunes at one of our many festivals. Discover finely carved wood creations, delicately sewn quilts, and brightly colored wool handspun on spinning wheels passed down through generations. We have cultivated a fellowship of creation along the Clinch River Artisan Trail, and welcome you to join it as you travel here.
