    Sterick Building-Background

    Built 1928, tallest building in the old south until the 1950's. Watched a 4th of July fire works show on the Mississippi River back in the late 70's. Very impressive show.

    Another view. Forgot to mention. I watched the show from the top floor, the 28th if I remember correctly.

    Scenic Walkway

    Scenic walkway along the Memphis Bluff. Great views of the Wolf and Mississippi Rivers and downtown Memphis.

    Civil War era type artillery pieces. This park had original canons from it's inception. At the beginning of WWII, they were removed and melted down and used in the war effort. After the war, small WWII artilliary pieces were put in the park as replacements. Recently they were removed and replica Civil War pieces installed. More appropriate to the history of the park.

    West Tennessee Music, Food, History, Sites, Rides

    The four bluffs are numbered 1-4, north to south. Fort Pillow, Randolph, Shelby Forest, Memphis. If your in the Memphis area, visiting for the music, Beale St., Elvis, Graceland, BBQ, history, etc., you may be looking for a nice ride in the area. Ride the four bluffs. The bluffs have an Ozark hills feel. Up, down, around with nice overlooks over the Mississippi River. Get your info at the Memphis downtown welcome center on Riverside Dr.. Great music, food, sites, riding are all here.

    Southwest Tn. Fine Tuned Riding Area

    It's pretty easy to figure out that Bluff #4 is downtown Memphis overlooking the Mississippi and Wolf Rivers. The other 3 are north of Memphis. It's a kind of a triangle area; the Mississippi River is the western border, the eastern line is Tn. Highway 51 from Memphis up to Ridley. The third and northern line is Highway 19 from Ridley to Golddust and Fort Pillow. The 3rd Bluffs are in Meeman-Shelby Forest SP. The road down to the river is behind the hq. Great ride up and down on that Bluff. 2nd Bluff is Randolph, Tn., see the Civil markers on the Bluff. Some markers are kinda behind the Methodist and a little north. Ride down a little closer to the river to John's Boat Dock. It's a regular stop for the bikers looking to get a cold adult beverage. If their cooking catfish, getcha some. The 1st Bluff is a little longer ride. There is no bridge over the Hatchie River close. Ride back out to Highway 51 to Covington then Ripley, then Highway 19 to Golddust and Fort Pillow State Park. Tour the Fort and state park area. It's really a step back in time.

    Several stops I feel that just match up with ride are the Old Millington Winery, Shelby Forest General Store, Shake Rag Bar and Grill, Pig & Whistle Restaurant. All these are Millington, Tn. Addresses. Just hilighting these, and there are others. So, if your ever stuck in Memphis, along with Beale Street, and downtown clubs and restaurants there is some interesting rides in the area. Ride and enjoy.
