If your looking for a good mix of a nature hike, Indian history and Nascar history, this is a pretty neat place. Abandoned 40 years ago you can see the overgrown bleachers and concession stands. You can still see how the track is banked in the turns.

I agree with the review by Jennoc. My Grandpa is of Cherokee Indian decent and used to race old cars and would love this place if he could get to it! Is NOT easily accessible for wheelchairs from main entrance :( Still though it was a great walk for the family!
