Easy peasy walk. It’s a big circle around the battlefield with marker plaques along the way with the history. ‘Path’ is along a wooden fences. Criss cross fence could make some beautiful pictures.

The trail follows the lines of a Civil War battle fought in the rain between poorly equipped Confederates and a strong Union force. Zollicoffer Park is named for the Confederate General who was killed during the battle. The trail winds beside fields, down to a ravine and back up to the ridge opposite the ravine. The trail ends at a Confederate cemetery and you may be under scrutiny by a herd of cattle as you approach the end and at other points along the trail. This is a beautiful walk through pastures and woodlands.
