Hike over and around water tupelo, baldcypress swamp. This is very short hike right off the Natchez Trace Parkway. A good one to take a family with a little one that is impatient. You gover over some bridges that are on top of a baldcypress swamp. Some really unique scenery. Very good trails and trailhead is right off the Parkway.

Short but sweet. Excellent signage along the way describing the trees and the role this swamp plays in the surrounding environment. Learn mostly what you are looking at in the water are water tupelo trees and not cypress. A don't miss if you are traveling on the Natchez Trace and need to stretch your legs for 15 or so minutes.
