This is an interesting and informative stop along the Natchez Trace. Short walk, and a nice little exercise before you get into Natchez if you are coming in from the north...or be sure to not miss it if you are headed up the Trace! And, I agree with previous reviewers: It is inspriring to see what the early inhabitants of the area were able to accomplish with rudimentary tools and MUCH motivation!

A Wonderful "field trip". It was inspiring. Makes you wonder how they did it! Good to See for a fourth grader who just studied the Mississippian and Natchez Indians. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It really does not take more than 30 minutes to visit the mound and walk around the site. It only a short piece off the Natchez Trace Parkway (<1mile?)

Our daughter begged us to stop and climb the Mound. It is amazing how the Natchez Indians created this site. A nice way to stretch the legs when driving the Natchez Trace.

If you're touring Natchez proper it's a little out of the way. Definitely off the beaten path.

If you know about mounds and what they mean this could be an awe inspiring experience for you.

If not, well, bring a kite or a frisbee.
