Fort Pillow 
Jan 31, 9:30AM.

We will hike the Red Trail, an eight mile loop. The trail begins at the Interpretive Center and is rated strenuous by West Tennessee standards. Early in the hike we visit the site of the historic fort, scene of a well-known Civil War battle. We will have lunch overlooking Fort Pillow Lake. After lunch there will be an option to take the shorter Yellow Trail back to the Interpretive Center, shortening the hike by a couple miles. While there are some steep hills on the trails before lunch, the worst of the climbs can be avoided by taking the shorter trail. Good boots suggested. Bring a lunch and plenty of water.

For directions and contact details, email
