The Nolichucky River was once a busy travel route for early settlers, including Davy Crockett and his family, and the river has been used for trade for centuries, from prehistoric inhabitants to frontiersmen to 19th-century lumber industry. Today, the Nolichucky--a Cherokee word for “Rushing Water” or “Dangerous Water” is known for its whitewater-rapid adventures.
