Trail of Tears Greenway Description

The Trail of Tears Greenway is a segment of the cross-country Trail of Tears Historical Trail, the corridor that documents the forced migration of thousands of Cherokee people from their homelands in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and North Carolina to Oklahoma in 1838 and 1839. 

In Springfield, a paved half-mile section parallels the Trail of Tears historical route and interpretive signage along the trail delineates its history. Starting from Nathanael Greene Park, the path continues south towards Battlefield. This trail is open to walkers, runners, bicyclists, and accessible for those with mobility aids or families with strollers. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park (2400 S Scenic Ave, Springfield) and at Battlefield City Park (5434 Tower Dr, Battlefield).
