American Locations 9 – Natchez Trace Parkway south segment

This trip is from the northern terminus of Natchez Trace National Road and off it at the southern terminus into Mississippi and Louisiana.

That evening we hiked up to a church, with an old graveyard next to it.

The next day our first stop was to see Owens Creek Waterfall (app. MM52).

Next stop was Magnum Mounds (app. MM45).

These weren’t nearly as well maintained as others we had seen.

We stopped to hike another trail along the Trace, I’m not sure where it was.

But the trees were getting big there.

At Mount Locust (app. MM16) we stopped to roam around another old inn that had operated when the Trace was active.

There was one last burial mound to see, Emerald Mound (app. MM10). This was the largest of them all.

We drove 10 more miles and we were off the Trace and in the city of Natchez.
