Shiloh Unit

The only established hiking trail at the Shiloh Unit of Shiloh National Military Park is an easy, 1.1-mile loop trail through the Shiloh Indian Mounds site. Other than that, visitors are welcome to walk the nearly 13 miles of tour road or some of the dirt roads in the park, such as the Sunken Road. The Boy Scouts have organized hiking paths for members to earn badges, but these hikes are also along the park’s paved and dirt roads. There are no secret hiking trails that only the Boy Scouts know about.

Biking is limited to the paved park roads. There are no specific bike lanes, but traffic does move slowly so it is fairly safe to bike through the park.

Corinth Unit

The Corinth Unit has four battlefield sites with trails that lead to trenches dug during the Siege of Corinth. While these can be hiked or biked, you would only bike in order to get to the trenches faster than walking.
