Located at mile marker #41.5 on Mississippi’s Natchez Trace, this deeply eroded section of the Sunken Trace is one of the gems that can be seen along the historic Natchez Trace.
With the exposed tree roots and surrounding land towering over my head, this section of the Trace felt eerie to me.
The Natchez Trace Parkway roughly follows the Old Natchez Trace, a historic forest trail that extends 444 miles from Nashville, Tennessee, to Natchez, Mississippi. This trail was created and used by Native Americans for centuries. During the 18th and 19th century, European and American explorers, traders and emigrants used the Trace for travel. Seven segments of the historic Natchez Trace are on the National Register of Historic Places.
