Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This there-and-back hike leaves the Natchez Trace Parkway Tupelo Visitor Center and roughly parallels the Parkway amid the rolling woods and fields of suburban Tupelo. Along the way it passes the Old Town Overlook, then ends at the site of a former Chickaaw Indian village, where a short nature trail starts that identifies important plants used by the Chickasaw. This village can also serve as an alternate trailhead if you want to do the hike one way.

The Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail extends for 62 miles in four sections along the Natchez Trace Parkway. This is one of three open sections in Mississippi. The national scenic trail was to have paralleled the entire Natchez Trace Parkway. Though completion of the entire trail is a long way off, plans are for the trail to be expanded. This particular section extends 7 miles one way, and this hike covers 4.7 miles of that in suburban Tupelo where civilization is never far away."
