Welcome to Moccasin Bend National Archaeological District, a unit of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. Prehistoric and historic sites located on Moccasin Bend reveal varying stories of human occupation spanning 12,000 years. However, two events occurred over the Brown's Ferry Federal Road trace that shaped American history as we know it.

Your journey begins here as you embark on a unique 1.2-mile, round trip hike that traverses a portion of the road trace that emigrating groups of Cherokee walked over during the Trail of Tears in 1838 and Union army supply wagons rumbled over during the Civil War in 1863.

For your safety, please stay on the designated path as you explore this important physical and cultural piece of history. Keep in mind, this is a foot path only. Bicycles and other vehicles should remain on the paved roads. Horses are not allowed. Your pets are welcomed, but be sure to keep them leashed at all times.

Brown's Ferry Federal Road hours: 6 a.m. to sunset.

For more information regarding this unit, please contact Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park at 706-866-9241 or visit the park website at
