Visit the Trail
Travel on the Chieftain Trail, or Nunahi-dunoklo-hilu-i ("the trail where they cried"), and explore the rich history of the Native Americans of northwest Georgia. Spend a weekend or just a day visiting the sites along the scenic trail that tells the story of the Native Americans who once lived in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Here you will find vestiges of three separate and distinct Native American cultures: the pre-historic Mississippian Culture, the Creeks, and the Cherokees.

Designated as a state historic trail by the Georgia General Assembly in 1988 as part of the 150th anniversary of the Trial of Tears, the trail offers visitors a wide variety of attractions, scenic beauty, accommodations, dining and shopping. Murray County sites include the Chief Vann House and Fort Mountain State Park. This trail is a learning experience that is adventurous for all! Call (800) 969-9490 for your brochure!
