The park museum is designed to replicate a prehistoric Native American mound. Recently remodeled, the museum focuses on Tennessee’s prehistory.

Hiking and Biking

The park’s archaeological features and wildlife can be viewed along six miles of interconnecting trail. The paved trail sections are bicycle/wheelchair accessible. Gravel/forest floor hiking trails, which do not permit bicycles, are of easy to moderate level. Flora and fauna of three intersecting ecosystems, a cypress swamp, mixed beech-oak slopes, and oak-hickory uplands, are viewable along these trails.
