Horseshoe Bend Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This easy trek takes you along gravel paths across forested hillsides. The trail uses interpretive exhibits to trace the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, which ended the Creek Indian War in 1814 and started General Andrew Jackson on the road to fame, and ultimately the White House. The path at Horseshoe Bend Park passes most of the exhibits that describe the battle. At each exhibit, signs describe what to look for. There are benches for rest, and a roof over each exhibit for shade. Pick up a free brochure from the visitor center before starting out. The brochure describes the exhibits and the battle in more detail. A ten-minute slide show at the visitor center gives an overview of the battle and the park."

this is a great short hike in the horseshoe bend national park. nothing too terrible, with decent signage to explain the importance of the area. went on a beautiful sunday for a walk in the woods. plenty of open space, too, for a picnic or kite flying.
