Enjoy an early evening after work History Hike with Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park Historian Jim Ogden and explore the Union Army cannon positions on Stringer's Ridge on Moccasin Bend. This 90-minute, moderate difficulty adventure is about 1.5 miles in length and will include a good view across the river to the city as the sun lowers in the west. Along the way, you'll learn about some of the pivotal actions here at the "Gateway to the Deep South" that helped shape our nation. Bring some comfortable, supportive footwear to change into and a jacket or slicker depending upon the weather. The tour will begin from near the entrance to the Moccasin Bend Mental Health Institute on Moccasin Bend Road; look for the park ranger and "Special Event" sign.
