natchez trace pkwy closed

On Sunday Jun 17, the National Park Service will close a section of the Natchez Trace Parkway to vehicles.

From 8a-noon, the parkway will be closed between mile marker 440 and Pinewood Road. Local park rangers have worked hard to get these few hours for everyone to enjoy the beauty of the Natchez Trace without the worry of car traffic. If there’s enough participation, this might become a yearly event, states a Facebook event page.

Parking will be available at the mm 440 parking lot, the Hwy 96 entrance or the Pinewood Rd entrance to the Trace.
