This trail is 0.8 miles, one way and leads to an old cemetery that is located inside the boundaries of Guntersville State Park. Turn onto the park road from Highway 227 and follow the signs towards the Lakeside Cottages. The gated entrance to this trail is on the left before reaching the cottages. After a peaceful rest and viewing the inscriptions on the grave markers, return to the road by way of the King’s Chapel Trail or follow the Terrell Trail towards the campground for a lengthier hike.

Some of the graves date back to the 1800’s and many of them are poorly constructed. In fact, the graves of some children and infants consist of nothing more than a pile of rocks and a headstone.

(Notice Terrell as one of the family names on tombstones in the cemetery.) This path is Moderate to Difficult. Courtesy: Alabama State Parks
