Snowbird Cherokees in western North Carolina chose a trail planted with trees and medicinal herbs to honor the memory of tribal leaders, like Junaluska, who have passed down age-old traditions. The Medicine Trail, which was completed in 2002, is located outside Robbinsville. The nearly seventy-five varieties of plants along the trail were selected for their role in the community's medicine traditions. Most of the plants along the trail are identified and their curative powers described. Plants include Joe Pye weed, sourwood, yellowroot, and goldenseal.
