Photos of Essary Springs Trails

Saturday, March 18, 2017

The trail is a generally straight cool walk through forest to the Hatchie River and back. It follows the historic trace of State Line Road to the river, but the bridge which used to be at the end of the trail washed out years ago. A few small clearings along the way provide rest stops, and one of these has graves and markers of both Confederate and Union soldiers who were killed here during the battle. There is unpaved parking for a couple of cars at the trailhead. The location is pretty remote and is managed by the Shiloh Military Park.
