Jeff Busby Park is named to honor, Thomas Jefferson Busby, the US Congressman that is responsible for getting the Old Natchez Trace survey done in 1934. Four years later, The Trace was designated part of the National Park System preserving this important piece of Mississippi and American history.
The park is mainly a camping and picnic area with a scenic overlook at the top of Little Mountain. You can drive or hike to the top of Little Mountain. At 603 feet high, it is one of the highest points in the state, on a clear day you can see about 20 miles.
Jeff Busby Park is on the Natchez Trace Parkway at milepost # 193.1
