The Trail of Tears Remembrance
Ride will start in Chattanooga, TN, and follow scenic highway 41/72 around
Lookout Mt. To Jasper, TN. In Jasper the ride will leave the Drane Hood route
and follow Highway 41 to Monteagle, TN. This route is one of the most scenic
and historic routes in the state. As the ride comes off Monteagle Mt. it will
pass thru Cowan, TN and on to Winchester TN. We will take highway 64 at
Winchester which is the Bell Removal route. This route went from Calhoun, TN to
Memphis, TN. We will remain on the Bell route to Fayetteville, TN where we will
stop for lunch, gas, and restrooms. Official Trail of Tears Remembrance
merchandise will be available during our stop at the Fayetteville Junior High
will depart at 11:30 or 12:00 C.S.T.
Upon departure we will
follow highway 64 to Pulaski, TN, the only point at which 2 land removal routes
cross; the Benge and Bell routes. This is a very historical point on the Trail
of Tears. We will continue on highway 64 to Lawrenceburg, where the Trail of
Tears was routed through downtown. Lawrenceburg holds a Trail of Tears
reenactment each year in November. From Lawrenceburg we will head south on highway 43
to Florence, AL and the end of the main ride at McFarland Park.
