Gravel Segment
From Dacus Rd, Marion, Crittenden County, Arkansas to Dacus Rd, Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee
This is the approximate route of the Old Military Road that went from Memphis to LR and was built in the 1820's. This segment is private farm land now. The original elevated road bed is actually just to the North and east of the road that appears on the map. However it it very overgrown and impassable....except as you get near Mound City and it's actually pretty scenery as it goes through the woods and ends at the fish camp at Mound City. You can ride on a paved part of Old Military road from there that will take you to downtown Marion. Sometimes this segment is gated off at the fish camp on the north end.
