A Walk through History The 450-mile foot trail that became known as the Natchez Trace was the lifeline through the Old Southwest. You can experience portions of that journey the way earlier travelers did - on foot. Today there are five separate trails totaling over 60 miles and they are administered by the Natchez Trace Parkway.

It's a nice trail with houses on one side to start and goes by roads here and there. There are some decent views of the country side. If your in the Tupelo area it's the best around unless you want to drive 45+

This is the closest trail to where my parents live, so I'm here often. Very clean and well-maintained, I just don't like how close you are to traffic/interstate noise. I like my nature to be removed-feeling.

I run it daily. It's an ok short mostly flat hike and a good trail run.

I loved it. So many different things to see and things to do there

Take exit 154a when traveling east . Take 154 if going west . Then go south of interstate . 1 minute off i20/59 ..
Lower lake has asphalt track around it 8 ft wide , 1.19 miles great stop as you go through meridian .

Upper trail is great
Hills and recovery spaced well . Lots of combinations on trails here , but the upper trail is about 5 miles and is great.
Wide trail around beautiful upper lake 3 1/5 miles plus in woods on crushed gravel . You can run in or after a rain . Lots of deer early and late . Upper lake run begins at boat ramp for about 5 miles .
Reward yourself with this trail . The best I've run.
1800 incline spaced well for recovery . Trails are safe . Never an incident here. Beautiful all year especially fall
3 small work out areas along the trail.
Children play area in park.
Picnic areas for families .
Close to all amenities

Restrooms nice too.

Drove the whole road with some stops along the way.

Great trail

Most of the hike was great. The first part of the path was VERY overgrown and wasn't great. Also, the end part of the path continued through a creek bed which was fine if you had a horse or didn't mind wading through the water to get to the other side of the trail. Other than that, beautiful forest scenery.

This is a wonderfully peaceful trail. I recommend it to anyone trying to get a break from the city.

Beautiful area, nice trail, but POORLY marked. We will go back but be prepared to get turned around your first there.
