Here are details and photos of our favorite Natchez Trace hiking trail near Nashville TN. The Old Trace trailhead is located at milemarker 426.3 on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Also, a little about ticks & lyme disease here in Tennessee, plus tips for removing ticks from your body (and from your dog!) and how to prevent tick bites in the first place.
Apparently there is some controversy as to whether or not caches can be placed on property within the Natchez Trace Parkway or not. Technically, state parks are fair game, and are NOT off limits for geocaching. Whereas, national parks are, in fact, OFF LIMITS for geocaching. There is currently only one cache hidden along the Natchez Trace Parkway.
I would encourage you to print out this ‘cheat sheet’ and keep it when you when you visit the Natchez Trace Parkway. It’s a handy reference guide listing all of the main locations where you can get food and supplies along the Trace.
