Established: March 28, 1983. Description:Trail lies within the boundaries of the Natchez Trace Parkway (see separate entry in National Parks section), which extends from Natchez, Mississippi, to Nashville, Tennessee. The Parkway commemorates the historic Natchez Trace, an ancient path that began as a series of animal tracks and Native American trails. It was later used by early explorers, "Kaintuck" boatmen, post riders, and military men, including General Andrew Jackson after his victory at the Battle of New Orleans. The Natchez Trace National Scenic Trail highlights existing segments of the original Natchez Trace wherever possible. In the trail's 1987 comprehensive plan, four segments near Nashville, Jackson, and Natchez totaling 110 miles were selected for development as hiking and horseback trails.
Legth: 485 miles.
