Little Pigeon River (Tennessee)
The Little Pigeon River is a scenic stream of Sevier County in East Tennessee. It rises from a series of streams which flow together on the Tennessee side of the dividing ridge between Tennessee and North Carolina inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The East Prong is paralleled for most of its length by Tennessee Highway 416. The West Prong is far better known as it drains the town of Gatlinburg, a major center for tourism. The confluence of the two forks is at the town of Sevierville, the county seat of Sevier County. From there the steam continues to flow norhtward, paralleled by Tennessee Highway 66, until its confluence with the French Broad River just downstream from Douglas Dam . Despite its name, it is not a tributary of the nearby Pigeon River, which flows into the French Broad well above Douglas Dam and the resultant reservoir.
