Shiloh Monuments Hike at Shiloh National Military Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Monuments Hike focuses on the Battle of Shiloh, honored here. You may want to begin with a tour by a park ranger, learning the significance and history of the battle. This hike follows the loop road, which runs through the center of the park and takes in most of the significant monuments. Walking it, you will be awed by the scale of the battle in a way that driving by at 30 miles per hour could not.
On this hike, one is struck by the apparent reality that a small and relatively insignificant act can change the course of a war and the history of a nation. Since the sun can be punishing on a hot day, and Tennessee has plenty of those, you might want to take this walk late in the day, so that stretches of the hike will be shaded and cooler."
