The large peninsula known as Stone Point is surrounded on three sides by the Upper Obed River Gorge. There are 7,539 feet or 1.43 miles of river frontage. Along with the fast-flowing river, there are cliffs and caves in many places. This section of the river is the wildest and least visited because of the lack of access points and private property. The large plateau above the river is a beautiful rolling pasture, an ideal setting for privacy and adventure. When you open the gate to Stone Point and shut it behind you, you enter your own private world.
The pasture at Stone Point lies above the rim of the Obed River gorge. Along the way down, canyon, caves, rock buttress cliffs, overhangs, and huge resting boulders make for an interesting hike, from Rim to River. Along the river, white-sand beaches give way to cool swimming and fishing holes, white water rapids, and huge trees to sit under. There are utilities, gas and city water along the road frontage. The pasture has been cut for hay for many years and the ground is cleared and level. The grassland to the river is a beautiful transition of sandstone cliffs, deep forest, and white beaches.
In the 1970s, the section of the Obed, 4 miles downstream of the property, was declared a National Scenic River. This is a beautiful hidden gem of Tennessee. This portion of the river starts at Adams Bridge on Genesis Road. There is an access area here for kayakers and rock climbers also frequent the cliffs.
