Preserved here is a 2000 foot long section of the old original Natchez Trace which follows a ridge 300 feet above the Duck River. A 10 to 15 minute stroll will take you to the end of the trail and back and provide a change of pace from driving. As you walk the old trace, imagine the ordeal of the 1800s travelers who had to make 20 to 30 miles a day on foot or on horseback.
