Trail of Tears State Park

Trail of Tears State Park tells the story of one of the most tragic events in American history. During the winter of 1838-1839, thousands of Cherokee Indians died during a forced march. The visitor center features exhibits about this sad story. The park also offers recreational trails for hiking and horseback riding. You’ll find breathtaking views of the Mississippi River. Birdwatching in the park can be outstanding, particularly for waterfowl.
