Hike Through the Trails of Mississippi

Mississippi is home to nearly 100 trails, including hiking and mountain biking trails. These trails range from one-half mile to 41.5 miles in length. A couple of exciting trails to explore include Black Creek Trail: Janice Landing to Big Creek Landing, Black Creek Trail: Fairley Bridge Landing to Janice Landing and Woodall Mountain.

The most popular trail is The Natchez Trace Parkway. This 450-mile recreational road spans all the way to Nashville, following the Old Natchez Trace, a centuries-old trade lifeline. This historic trail was a travel corridor that was used by American Indians, Mississippi River boatmen (aka Kaintucks), slave traders, Civil War soldiers, European settlers, and even future presidents. Today Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail runs parallel to the Parkway and is used for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and camping.
