Dunlap is located in the heart of the Sequatchie Valley. Just off Hwy 111, this historic town connects Chattanooga to Tennessee’s South Cumberland Plateau. During its formative days, it was known as Coops Creek. However, officials changed the name in 1858 to Dunlap one year after Sequatchie County was organized.

If you love history, then don’t miss the self-guided Historic Dunlap Walking Tour. Historically, farming and coal mining played a big part in the economic development of the area. The Coke Ovens Museum tells the story of the coal mines and the miners who worked in them. Also, it features the largest collection of historic mining photographs in the state of Tennessee. Many local businesses highlight the area’s heritage, like Rolling Oak Distillery.

Set in the heart of the Sequatchie Valley, Dunlap is an aerial sports hub! Hang-gliding and paragliding activities, operated by the Tennessee Tree Toppers Club and Flying Camp Paragliding, take place from the bluffs throughout the year.

Likewise, paddlers can enjoy “gentle thrills” on the Sequatchie River Blueway, which winds 116 miles through the Sequatchie Valley. Visitors can use the convenient public river access site on Old York Hwy. From Harris Park in downtown Dunlap, visitors can stroll the Coops Creek Greenway from Pine Street to Sequatchie County Schools.
