History and Nature Education in One Hike What an educational and relaxing hike. This hike starts across the road from the parking area. The trail is very well marked and there are numerous placards along the way. These placards give information on history of the area as well as nature education of the flora and fauna of the area. There are also quizzes along the way to keep you thinking. Trees have markers displaying the name and species of the tree. The Confederate Memorial Park is the site of Alabama's only Confederate veterans home. The facility was in operation from 1902-1939 for the care of elderly veterans, wives of veterans and even the widows of veterans. The park has two original cemeteries where more than three hundred residents of the veterans home are buried. A rustic Museum building houses artifacts from the "Old Soldiers Home", as well as an extensive collection of uniforms, weapons, equipment and other items associated with the Civil War.

Pretty decent trail. Short but history laden. Museum is a must if you enjoy confederate history.

Short walk, most of the site were where things used to be. But fun to read the plaques describing the history of the land
