The Little Sequatchie River is a 19.6-mile-long (31.5 km)[2] tributary of the Sequatchie River in Tennessee. Unlike its larger namesake, it does not have a spectacular large spring source but is the result of the confluence of many smaller streams in a very remote, scenic area of the Cumberland Plateau along the line between Grundy County and Marion County. It flows down a narrow valley, basically south. Its mouth is near the community of Sequatchie (also rendered "Sequachee").
