Itinerary:

Chickamauga Battlefield contains around 50 miles of hiking trails, and the Lookout Mountain Battlefield has around 30 miles of trails. Many of these trails follow historic road traces that were present at the time of the battles, roads set up by the military in the early 20th century, or lead to monuments and markers located deep within the battlefield. I found walking on these grounds a moving experience.

The terrain is flat, the trail surfaces are smooth, and this would be a relaxing walk if you did the West Rim Loop Trail the previous day.

The itinerary is essentially walking on the Yellow Trail towards the site where Jay's Mill used to be, and returning to the parking lot via a short connecting trail and the Red Trail.
