Chickamauga Battlefield Memorial Trail

Chickamauga Battlefield Memorial Trail Professional Review and Guide

"In the 5200-acre Chickamauga Battlefield, trails pass though forests and fields that resemble their condition during the 1863 Civil War battle, allowing you to imagine the challenge of fighting in this formidable terrain.

The paths are mostly flat, making it easy to comfortably explore the park with children, and the woods are packed with many memorials and interpretive signs that offer incredible detail—even the specific hours that certain troops occupied spots of land. A unique aspect of the battle is that it claimed the lives of an unusual number of high-ranking officers. The hike detailed below is the Memorial Trail, designed for Boy Scouts, which visits the places where eight brigade commanders fell during battle. Though this hike is 8.5 miles, you can cut it short at several points and walk on roads back to the visitors center."
