Natchez Trace Parkway
Native Americans, Kaintuck boatmen, post riders, government officials, and soldiers all moved across this trail, creating a vital link between the Mississippi Territory and the fledgling United States. Pass through forests, cypress swamps, and farmland to meander through the rock-studded hills of Tennessee, cotton fields in Alabama, and Mississippi's rural countryside.
Stretching from the bright lights of Nashville, Tennessee, south to the banks of the Mississippi River in Natchez, Mississippi, the Natchez Trace Parkway was named by ESPN as one of the country's top ten road biking destinations.
Watch and listen for echoes of the region's Civil War past as you bike the Natchez Trace Parkway through northern Mississippi.
