Port Royal is designated as an official site on the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail. The Trail of Tears recognizes the forced removal of Native Americans from their homelands in the Southeastern United States and the paths they traveled westward in 1838 and 1839. Hiking is a popular activity within the park. The Overlook Trail is a short stroll along the top of the bluff to overlook the Red River and the bottom below. The Trail of Tears is an original, preserved section of the Trail of Tears certified by the National Park Service. This trail is about 300 yards long and is rated easy. The River Bottom Trail connects to the Trail of Tears and provides a leisurely walk through a forested river bottom.

Not a bad little walking trail

I loved the trail for a nice walk, or maybe picnic with kids, but I look for trails for running and it was too short for me in that category. I ended up having to run it five times to get a half hour in. But for a leisurely walk with easy terrain it was beautiful!
