Historic Trace near Rocky Springs Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This out-and-back hike travels along portions of the actual Natchez Trace as it travels northeasterly. Pass through the Little Sand Creek drainage before rolling through forested wetland to reach the Gees Creek drainage. Before you start your hike, drive around the loop to the upper trailhead for the short walk through the town of Rocky Springs, a once thriving rural community founded in the late 1790s.

It is now hard to believe that over 2,000 people lived around this watery upwelling and its outskirts just prior to the Civil War. Take a segment of the Old Trace and begin the town site loop. The old church is still being used. Only relics are left elsewhere. Interpretive signs help you enjoy the trail."
