TUPELO, MS: Due to recent high winds and rainfall along the Natchez Trace Parkway (Parkway), visitors should expect to see newly fallen trees across many sections of the National Scenic Trail. Caution is advised on all trails. “Visitors should be aware of their surroundings while hiking and be vigilant in looking for overhead limbs that may pose a hazard,” stated Chief of Resource Management Lisa McInnis.
Parkway officials are planning for crews to remove trail obstructions and make general trail repairs. For additional information about this project and the Parkway, please call (800) 305-7417.
