About Natchez Trace Information

The Old Natchez Trace was a 500-mile footpath that connected Mississippi to Tennessee. It is now a National Scenic Trail made of four trails that total 65 miles.

The Old Natchez Trace ran through Choctaw and Chickasaw lands connecting Natchez, Mississippi, to Nashville, Tennessee. You can experience portions of that journey the way earlier travelers did ' by traveling one of the four trails on foot.

The four trails are: Rocky Springs Trail, Mississippi; Tupelo Trail, Mississippi; Ridgeland Trail, Mississippi; and Leipers Fork Trail, Tennessee.
