NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee environmental officials have added nearly 400 acres to Piney Falls State Natural Area in Rhea County.

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation announced Friday that the acquisition adds to the 440-acre area that includes creeks, waterfalls and old forests. It consists of deep gorges carved from the Little Piney River and Soak Creek Designated State River.

The deal transfers the land from The Nature Conservancy in Tennessee to the state with the help of The Tucker Foundation and the Open Space Institute.

The additional land could be used to develop trails in the future. The state says the new acres include views of the ridge and valley of the Cumberland Plateau.
