  • Pinson Mounds is a great little spot to take your family out to enjoy nature and walking, with a little history. The park is clean and well maintained. The museum is simple, but pretty neat and you can see some of the archeological work they do. There are also multiple pavilions, a nice playground, cabins and a meeting facility. I wouldn't drive more than a few hours to visit here, but it's a nice little local preserve with plenty of improved and unimproved trails. There's a fair bit of trails that are wheelchair friendly.
  • A perfect place for a spring or fall stroll through West Tennessee woodlands that formerly were inhabited by Native Americans. They even have an "under mound" museum dedicated to the history of the area. They still don't know what the mounds were for but one of them has an observation deck on top that you can look out for miles of there aren't leaves in the trees once traverse the several flights of stairs to the top. There's also a board walk that snakes through the cypress trees along the river.
  • Awesome walking and bike trails. Plentiful wildlife. It's free!
  • My favorite place to be alone and meditate in the entire world. The most beautiful, positive vibes exists here.
  • This was a beautiful park but something about it bothered me. It seems weird to have bike paths and steps to the tops of mounds when the place really is like a cemetery. It seemed that whomever developed the park had little reverence for the original purposes of the land. It was indeed beautiful though.
