Natchez Trace Parkway

Search Tupelo Mississippi

The Natchez Trace Parkway, angling southwest to northeast across Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, is being developed by the National Park Service to commemorate the Old Natchez Trace, which evolved from an American Indian trail into a post road and pioneer highway. The parkway follows the route of the original trace, which extended about 450 miles from Nashville to Natchez.

Wayside exhibits, interpretive markers and self-guiding nature trails highlight locations that illustrate the history of the trace. The Parkway includes the Tupelo National Battlefield and the Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail.
