The Natchez Trails are a combination of city streets and walkways dotted with interpretive panels depicting the history of the area in which you are walking. The trails run throughout the downtown area and along the bluff overlooking the river. Pedestrians and cyclists can share parts of the trails, and you can wind your way down to the edge of the mighty Mississippi River. Not only is it a great way to get some exercise, it is a great way to learn a lot about the abundant history of Natchez. The trail is wide enough atop the bluff to be shared by walkers and those just wanting to take a look at the river or watch a magnificent sunset over neighboring Louisiana. You can add an extra day to your stay just to spend it walking along the Natchez Trails.
