Yanahli Park

  • Overview

    Yanahli Park is 474 acres of numerous ecosystems, diverse flora and fauna, unique geologic and hydrological features and habitat for potential rare, threatened, and endangered species. The park provides connectivity to the 12,000-acre Yanahli Wildlife Management Area. Yanahli is a Chickasaw word meaning "to flow through." Cheeks Bend 800-acre natural area is part of the Duck River Complex located within the Yanahli Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and managed by the TWRA. Cheeks Bend Bluff View Trail is a two-mile trail that wanders along the bluff overlooking the Duck River. The trail intersects with Rummage Cave, a short, horizontal cave with five oval rooms about 30 feet wide that bring you near the base of the bluff.
