A unit of the National Park Service, the Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile drive through exceptional natural and rural scenery that traverses 10,000 years of North American history. Utilized by American Indians, “Kaintucks,” settlers, and future presidents, the Old Trace played an important role in American history. Today, visitors can enjoy not only a scenic drive but they can also hike, bike, boat, horseback ride, and camp. Special events such as Dulcimer Day and Pioneer Day are regularly scheduled to entertain and enlighten visitors. Children can enjoy fun educational activities at Junior Ranger programs. Visitors enter free of charge and can plan their visits and learn about the Trace at the Parkway Visitor Center at milepost 266 in Tupelo, MS. The park rangers engage visitors at the small museum and are happy to share a new, high-quality, modern introductory movie.
