Meeman - Shelby State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Mississippi River made Memphis. So it is only fitting that a nearby getaway lies on the banks of the Father of Waters. What surprises visitors are the outdoor opportunities—hiking, biking, and paddling—in a serene park that is so close to downtown. (We’re talking 15 miles as the crow flies.) Located north of the city on the Chickasaw Bluffs, this park was first developed by the National Park Service and later deeded to the state of Tennessee.

Dogwood Ridge Campground, your base camp, lies beneath a tall deciduous forest of sugar maple, tulip, and sweet gum trees. It is divided into three loops. Smaller trees make for beyond-adequate campsite privacy. The campsites are level, even though the terrain falls away from the campground."

We did not have much time so we just did the "guided" 1.5 mile hike. You would know what this is if you visit the website. Although it is free, it was not even worth having the guide for us. I think we knew more than she did. Confusing a corn snake with a copperhead is a bad mistake. That was just one of hers. Other than that, the trail was pretty cool though. We saw numerous toads, a fawn that was very curious, and 2 or 3 snakes.
