My family went to Natchez Trace from Cullman, AL for a Sunday drive mostly to enjoy the fall foliage. We got on NTP off of Hwy. 72 & it was spectacular plus there were deer grazing along the way back just as the sun was setting. We stopped to watch & tried to count but there were too many!!! Amazing! I have never seen so many in one place like that. There was at least 10. I stopped counting & just enjoyed their beauty & grace. We stopped & hiked the Rock
Spring trail where there was a huge beaver damn built on a extremely calm & pretty creek! There was lots of info stops along the way with very useful tidbits about the native animals along the wetlands & woods in this region. It only
took us 30 minutes to hike it & it was nice to get a little exercise before we went back to our lazy Sunday drive! I highly recommend driving the Natchez Trace! Back in August of 2005 we took part of it on our way back from a trip from California. We got on it at Jackson, Missippi to just before Tupelo & was in awe that such a natural and breathtaking place was this close to home! I highly recommend any part of the Trace & we plan to go back to Colbert County
& get on the ferry across the Tennessee River!!! That sounds like fun! Happy Hiking!

With so many outdoors activities available in Alabama you'll never get bored. Ok, you've been
cooped up too long, time to get out in nature a bit and Natchez Trace in Colbert County, Alabama is the outdoors at it's best.
