The Natchez Trace was an old travel-and-trade route used by Indians and settlers. A western branch of this path that once connected Nashville, Tennessee and Natchez, Mississippi passes through this park, where today visitors hike, fish, swim, ride horses, and camp on 48,000 acres of attractive forest that was once among the most abused land in the state. Subsequent conservation, which begun in the 1930s, has rendered the Natchez an inviting destination. Miles of hiking trails here traverse woodlands, fields, streams, and shorelines. Mountain bikers have miles and miles of backcountry roads and paths to pedal. Park stables offer trail rides too.
