The Devil's Backbone State Natural Area, located adjacent to the Natchez Trace Parkway at milepost 394, offers the opportunity for a quiet hike in a natural environment little affected by modern human action.

The trail takes hikers from the parking area just off the Natchez Trace Parkway out along the ridges of Tennessee's Highland Rim, down along a creek, and back again. The trail is a moderately strenuous loop with 200 feet of elevation change that is about 3 miles long.
