Cumberland River

The Cumberland River enters western Trousdale County betwen River Miles 258 and 259 and flows through the county until entering Smith County at appoximately River Mile 284. The river has been a source of recreation and commerce. In the early days of Hartsville, the river was used to ship goods produced in the area, making Hartsville a commercial hub. Steamboats also carried visitors to Hartsville. The World Record Walley was also caught by Hartsville by local resident Mabry Harper. The fish was 41 inches long and weighted 25 pounds. 

Today, the river can be accessed via four access areas.  The main access area, and the only one that has a ramp directly on the Cumberland River, is 
Taylor's Landing located at the end of Cemetery Lane. There are two access areas located on Second Creek. The  Second Creek ramp is located on Oldham Road, and the second ramp is located next to the Pine Cove Campsites and Motel at the end of Boat Dock Lane.  Finally, a small boat ramp onto the Big Goose Creek is located on Lock Six Road
