Parker's Crossroads, Tennessee Map

very pleasant walk on mostly paved path. I will walk this trail again!

This trail interprets the Battle of Parker's Crossroads, December 31, 1862. Another loop trail north of Interstate 40 also describes part of the battle. Both trails are part of a driving tour of the Parker's Crossroads Battlefield Association. The South Loop Trail starts at a large parking lot and kiosk and proceeds along a level paved track through mostly fields with a shady grove and the edge of a forest. One trail branch leads east through forest and over uneven ground about 1000 feet to a Confederate artillery position. A branch off this artillery trail leads south through the forest beside a shallow ravine.This is a very enjoyable walk and a chance to explore a really interesting battle with a surprise ending.
