One of the most popular attractions along the Tennessee River Trail is the 7,000-acre Big Sandy Peninsula between the Big Sandy and Tennessee Rivers. This unique area provides habitat for wintering waterfowl, nesting songbirds, migratory shorebirds and many other wildlife species including bald eagles in the winter. Pace Point, on the peninsula's tip, is considered one of the top 10 birding locations in the state. While you're here, visit historic Mt. Zion Church, check out the view from Bennett's Creek Observation Deck, or hike the fully interpreted 1.2-mile Chickasaw National Recreation Trail.
