This primitive trail showcases the Tennessee River and the work of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC constructed the stone steps, bridges and check-dams located along this trail. This trail takes you along the bluffs of the river for scenic views of the river and neighboring Florence, Ala., and also down to the shoreline to enjoy splashing around in the river. Remnants of a fossil plant, CCC Park, Civil War earthworks, an old railroad bridge and state-listed plants are also visible from this trail.
