Natchez Trace Multi-Use Trail

Bicyclists, walkers and joggers can access the Natchez Trace Multi-Use Trail from Reservoir Overlook's parking area. This is the northern terminus of the trail. Further south the trail joins the Ridgeland Multi-Use Path. From here, you can walk or bike south for several miles paralleling the parkway all the way to the Choctaw Agency at milepost 100.7. This alternate route will help bicyclists avoid heavy car traffic through the Jackson/Ridgeland/Madison area.
