Information for cyclists bicycling from the Natchez Trace to Overlook Hill Guest House - Madison, MS.

Natchez Trace Parkway Cyclist

Overlook Hill is two miles via bicycle from the Natchez Trace Parkway. Cyclists can bike off the parkway onto the Chisha-Foka Multi-Use Trail (paved walking/biking path) and bike to Overlook Hill's neighborhood that is nestled between the parkway and the Ross Barnett Reservoir. See maps/directions below.

Cyclists could also use Overlook Hill as a "home base" by staying two or more nights. One day biking on the multi-use trail and its spur trails into Ridgeland's dining/shopping areas and by two bicycle shops. Another day biking the multi-use trail to the Reservoir Overlook site (milepost 105.6) and then north on the Natchez Trace Parkway, turn around and bike back to Overlook Hill. Optionally another day, drive north on the parkway to the River Bend site (milepost 122.6), park your vehicle and bike north on the parkway "out" to Kosciusko, MS (milepost 160) and have lunch in town and then bike south "back" to your vehicle.
