The principal river of the Volunteer State is the Tennessee, which crosses the state twice on its 652-mile course to the Ohio River in Kentucky.

It is an area of foothills, forests, lakes, rivers and pastures that rise abruptly from 900 to 2,000 feet above the valleys to the east and west. Its southern end is cut in two by the narrow rift of the Sequatchie Valley. To the west of the Cumberland Plateau lies the Highland Rim, a generally level plateau cut by many small ravines. It's the largest natural region of the state, covering more than 10,000 square miles and extending from the plateau's jagged western edge to the valley of the Lower Tennessee River.
