Other Park Features
The Chickasaw Trace County Park has a log cabin and two open-air shelters available for gatherings. There is a radio control flight field for model airplanes, a radio control track for model cars, and a boat ramp for the Duck River. A pavilion was recently added at MTB parking thanks to the efforts of Abe Perryman and his Eagle Project.
Columbia residents: Chickasaw Park is located on at 1415 New Hwy. 7 in Columbia, TN, almost two miles past the intersection of New Hwy. 7 (Santa Fe Pike) and Industrial Park Road.
From I-65: take Exit 46 and go west on 412. Continue on 412 for 11 miles and exit right on New Hwy. 7 and right again at the end of the exit toward Dickson. Entrance to the park is approximately 4 miles on the left.
From I-40: take Exit 172. Go south on Hwy 46 that eventually becomes Hwy. 7. Stay on Hwy. 7 south for approximately 20 miles. The park is on the right just after the village of Athendale.
Take the first left entering the park, then hard left again downhill (dirt road) to get to the main Mountain Bike parking field. Suggestion: If you are going to ride the River and Woodland Trails only, it is more convenient to park in the Boat Ramp parking lot. Instead of a hard left, continue on the paved road. The lot is on the right about 50 yards from the river.
