This is an easy loop located in Chickasaw State Park in West Tennessee. The trail features some impressive short leaf pines and white oaks and traverses thru an abundance of ferns in the lower areas. Chickasaw State Park was named for the Chickasaw Indians who once inhabited West Tennessee and North Mississippi. The 1,400 acres of land located in West Tennessee along the border of Hardeman and Chester Counties was one of Tennessees 20 New Deal-era state parks. The territory became a state park in 1955 when all park duties returned to state control, and the park and forest lands were deeded to the state. The park is situated on some of the highest terrain in west Tennessee. Of the areas 14,384 acres of timberland, 1,280 acres are used for recreation. Chickasaw State Park offers various activities for visitors to embark on including more than four miles of easy to moderate hiking trails and bicycle friendly roads. Guests can utilize the rowboats and pedal boats available for rent on Lake Placid.

It's a nice little trail that loops the lake. Very easy trail with a few bridges. You can spot several birds and turtles if you're lucky. Take the whole family on this hike for a fun afternoon.

This is an easy loop trail featuring some impressive pines probably planted in the 1930's by CCC camp workers when the park was originally constructed. You can make this into a good day hike by adding the lake loop and friends loop.
