Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Trail of Tears State Park is a place of both natural beauty and historical significance. The park’s name evokes the forced relocation of American Indians from their lands in the Southeast. Called Nunahi-DunaDlu-Hilu-I by natives, or “Trail where they cried,” their 800-mile trek passed by and through the park.

It’s estimated that 4,000 people died during the trek to Indian Territory in what is now eastern Oklahoma. In 1987 Congress designated the Trail of Tears a National Historic Trail."
