Natchez Trace Parkway
The natural beauty and historic significance of the Natchez Trace is easy to access in Lawrence County.
Highway 64 West offers quick entry to the 444-mile parkway that has been part of the National Park System since 1938. An exhibit shelter located just off the Highway offers much information for visitors, and they can find a sampling of all the Trace offers within just a few miles.
The natural travel corridor that became the Natchez Trace bisected the traditional homelands of the Natchez, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations. As the United States expanded westward in the late 1700s and early 1800s, growing numbers of travelers tramped the rough trail into a clearly marked path.
Today’s visitors can get a sense of what those travelers saw when they go north on the Trace from the Highway 64 exit and turn off the main parkway onto the Old Trace. The 2.5 mile, one-way road is surrounded by virgin forest, and miles of it can be seen from several overlooks.
