The Tsa La Gi Trail is open in two disconnected segments in Fayetteville. While not particularly scenic, the trail is an extremely useful funnel for residents of the rapidly developing southern sector of Fayetteville to the spine of the city's impressive trail system.
The eastern segment begins at a junction with the Frisco Trail, also part of the popular 36-mile Razorback Regional Greenway, south of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. From here, the trail proceeds west along a former rail corridor to S. Razorback Road (State Route 112). This section also includes a tunnel under the active Arkansas & Missouri Railroad line—the same one paralleled closely by the Frisco Trail farther north in downtown Fayetteville.
The western segment begins in the new Beechwood Village student apartment community off Beechwood Avenue and proceeds through that community as well as the adjacent University House apartment complex. After crossing Hollywood Avenue, the trail continues to its endpoint at W. Best Way Street near Interstate 49. Here, the Town Branch Trail seamlessly continues southeast to additional student housing. Alternatively, take low-stress Hollywood Avenue north to reach retail along Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
The Tsa La Gi Trail roughly follows one of the routes of the Trail of Tears, the harsh path many Cherokee were led on the forced migration from their native lands to a reservation in Oklahoma. The history is commemorated in the Tsa La Gi Trail's name: “Tsalagi” is the Cherokee word for the Cherokee language.
Parking for the Tsa La Gi Trail can be found at Walker Park's large parking lots off Block Avenue, College Avenue, 13th Street and 15th Street in Fayetteville. From the park, take the Frisco Trail north a short distance to reach the Tsa La Gi Trail.
