I have visited 3-4 spots so far. While some trails were pretty, others lacked much scenery and the paved trails and railings really led to a disconnect from the nature around me. I also likely confused a trail with a road and took a good detour for a few miles. There were also more folks visiting each spot than the other locations I prefer to hike at. It's definitely worth going at least once, especially if you're looking for an easier surface to walk, bike, what have you. I'll likely return to visit the other stops at some point.
Stopped at a couple of the trails. They were enjoyable and a pretty good workout. Unless I'm missing something, you need to get in your car and drive down the Natchez trace to visit the other trails. I wish there was one, long, connected trail but at least the trails I've been to have been enjoyable.

great going back soon
Beautiful waterfall. The main fall is fed by a beautiful trickling cascade hiding above the rocks to the back right
All parts of this waterfall is easily accessible. I would recommend this to everyone. The walkway down to the fall is easy and beautiful!
We went to Jackson Falls which is located at mile marker 404.7. Easy trail although steep. 900 feet from car to falls. The water was low so not much falls activity, so we hiked in the creek bed to the river. Jackson falls is about 35 miles south from highway 96 exit in Franklin TN.
Went to Jackson Falls and Fall Hollow on the Parkway. There wasn't much water in Jx Falls, but it was still a pretty fall. Not a bad hike; descends on the way to the fall. Might want to allow more time to ascend the hike back, but still not too difficult. The "trail" is paved.
I start 4 years ago camping at Natchez State Park in the primitive area and sight seeing the city a little but Starting The Trace going to all the sites listed on a Trace map the Information center gives out. We went to the Natchez Indian Heritage Center and that was our start up the Trace. This September will be our 4th trip. I love it because we do more than The Trace, We do trails in the parks we stay at and take in even tourist things of the cities near by. Natchez Park had a very nice secret nature trail we found near the bathrooms in the new RV park area across the parking lot. You go down a hill on this trail and up again. There is a lookout point through the trees that oversees the Lake Natchez. It is BEAUTIFUL. Unfortunately the camera wasn't working. This year we start at Hurricane Creek where we left off last year. This year we take in Jeff Busby Campgrounds.
