"Sunken Trace at milepost 41.5. This stop gives you one of the iconic pictures from the Natchez Trace. Just a short five minute walk can send you back in time over 200 years. From this spot it is easy to imagine traveling the Old Natchez Trace by foot before the automobile.” ~ Ranger Andy
"Jeff Busby Little Mountain at milepost 193.1. Atop the summit, you can see the hills of Mississippi or follow the 1/2 mile loop down into to a shady hollow." ~ Ranger Kathryn
"Buzzard Roost Spring at milepost 320.3. It is one of my favorite little-known stops. The Water from the spring is a vibrant almost opaque blue, and its a great spot to relax and listen to the water as is gushes forth from the earth." ~ Ranger Jake
