Established: 1987. Description:Two trail routes were used for the forced removal of more than 15,000 Cherokee Indians by the U.S. Army from their ancestral lands in the southeastern states to lands west of the Mississippi River in the late 1830s. Various detachments followed different routes west to the Oklahoma Territory. The journey lasted from June of 1838 to March of 1839 and thousands died along the way. Today, the designated trail follows: a water trail (1,226 miles) along the Tennessee, Ohio, Mississippi, and Arkansas rivers; and an overland route (826 miles) from Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
Legth: 2,200 miles.
