Description

The Gary Holdiness Cycling Fund and Tour d' Attala Cycling Club invite you to take the challenge with us to explore, support and educate motorists as well as cyclists on safety while traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway. Enjoy the parkway as you ride north to Little Mountain, one of the highest points in Mississippi, 603 feet above sea level.

Out and back ride heading North for a total of 20,40 or 70 miles.. First 10 to the top of Little Mountain, 35 miles out, located at Jeff Busby , receives a “King of the Mountain”, red and white jersey.

The rides will start and end on the historic square in Downtown Kosciusko. Three rides to choose from:

  • 20 mile and a 40 mile ride. Both of these out and back routes have a few gentle climbs.
  • 70 mile Little Mountain Ride
    This out and back route will take you North of French Camp where the more challenging climbing starts. On your way to one of the highest points in Mississippi, you'll go over what locals call the holy ghost. You'll then be on a fast decent to Jeff Busby camping area. Once you leave the Pkwy you'll climb 200 feet in just under a mile to Little Mountain Summit.

All proceeds go to the Gary Holdiness Cycling Fund which supports cycling safety and awareness on the Natchez Trace Parkway.
