Exploring the Piney River

The Piney River is a 23.7-mile-long  tributary of the Duck River in Middle Tennessee. Via the Duck River, the Tennessee River, and the Ohio River, it is part of the Mississippi River watershed. The headwater tributaries of the Piney River rise in Dickson County, Tennessee near the city of Dickson.

The West and East Piney rivers flow together near the community of Mount Sinai; this confluence marks the true head of the stream. The stream flows from this point south-southeast into Hickman County, where it meets the waters of the Duck River a few miles west-northwest of Centerville. The Piney’s major tributary in Hickman County is Mill Creek, a scenic stream which is frequently stocked with trout by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Scenic views and pristine surroundings make the Piney River a favorite among wild life enthusiasts, outdoors-men and of course the locals who live there.

Come explore the Piney River with us on the Arts & Ag Tour! Stop by Piney River Enterprise Inc., located in Bon Aqua,  for a mix of arts and agriculture. Neat Stuff Pottery Studio there features an outdoor gas kiln and is surrounded by the farm where the Lewis’ raise grass fed beef and custom hay. There are also camping and RV sites available for the days of the Tour. These  photos are from their recent Grand Opening!

In the community of Nunnelly, along the Piney you’ll find Pinewood Canoe Camp, for outdoor recreation,  and Piney River Farms with an organic vegetable garden and grass fed beef.

And don’t forget to stop in at Old Mill Creek Studio in Nunnelly to view works by Blue Heron, Michael Singer, Ken Smith, Richard Bogle and BeaverWorks.
