Natchez Trace Parkway and the Pharr Indian mounds

The Natchez Trace Parkway is a beautiful drive through 52,000 acres/444 miles of forest Рthe modern remainder of trade and transport trails and roads used for thousands of years by Native Americans, traders and trappers, explorers, and early American pioneers. It runs through three states, Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee, and has multiple hiking trails, scenic attractions, and campgrounds along the way.
