Description: During the winter of 1838-39 nine of the thirteen Cherokee Indian groups being relocated, crossed the Mississippi River at what is now known as Trail of Tears State Park. The visitor center tells the tale of the thousands who died on the forced march. You will get the opportunity to get a taste of the grueling trek they endured, as well as experience the majestic views of Lake Boutin and the Mississippi River. In 2013, Missouri was named "Best Trails State" in America by national trails magazine. Trail of Tears State Park received the most votes as best trails in Missouri. Therefore, these must be the some of the best trails in the country. Through this race you will get to experience all the park has to offer. From the Lake Trail, that winds along the shoreline of Lake Boutin, to the Peewah Trail located in one of the most rugged of Mississippi River hills. This course is may cause you to leave your own 'trail of tears'.
