Sac R. on T.O. Fuller State Park Trail
I liked the rough terrain, but you can here the traffic which kinda took away from the feeling of isolation.
My absolute favorite place to run and hike in Memphis! One of the best secret spots. The trail is almost always maintained, unless you go right after a storm, and the staff are super friendly. 250ft of elevation gain over 4 miles. They are improving the park now to include a really cool nature center on other old golf course and replant the whole area with native plants and grasses.

stinging needles thru path. it is not maintained
Meh. The trail itself is challenging enough, and it's pretty when you're not right up next to the road, but half the time I was hiking, I kept smelling human waste. Not sure if it was all the stagnant water or the dumping station for the campground. And they're apparently doing construction? I go hiking to get away from human noise. For the novice hiker who enjoys a hike close to civilization, this is an ideal trail.

Great for beginners. Peaceful. Will see wildlife. Very cool old tombstones inside. Gave it 4 stars because it is not well marked.
I got to the visitor center and the park ranger named Tony was very helpful and friendly. He passed out a copy of the trail to me and I was off on my way. I started at the trail head across the street and I was off. The trail was marked well and very enjoyable. Tons of birds and squirrels and many trees have signage on them as well. I will do it again!
An amazing contradiction from history to modern; from old deep south to music and then there is the mighty Mississippi River. It is flat most of the way, but when you get to Vicksburg, take Lovers Lane up to the National Cemetery. This reminder of the horrors of the Civil War is the highest point between Memphis and New Orleans. From the cemetery there is an awesome view of the delta.
