Visit the removal camp site of the Cherokee Indians as they were removed in 1838 at what is now called the Big Spring Park in Cedartown. You can follow the route with the newly erected signs placed throughout the trail. More than 200 Cherokees once lived along the waterways in the Cedartown area. The driving tour begins at the intersection of Wissahickon Road. The original trail can still be seen in a pasture from aerial view. There are no user or entry fees for the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail. Operating hours vary from site to site.
