If you are quite and patient there is a lot of wildlife to see. The down side this year is the bus size mosquitoes, and tick's I've never seen this bad

Fantastic little place, mile marker 121. Short and easy stroll around stunning still water. You might be lucky enough to spot some alligators. We went just before sunset and saw 3 enjoying some last minute sun. Well worth stopping by if you have the time!

This is a short hiking trail through, and alongside of, a swamp. If you're driving by it's worth a stop. Make sure to wear big repellant as the mosquitos are awful!

Magical place just north of Jackson, you'll be immersed in a bald cypress swamp, enjoying the nature sounds and the reflections of the trees on the water.

Allan Luer

James Butler


Joseph Pearce


Kellen Busby

Cool ecosystem to see and definitely very beautiful in a way that a swamp can be. Worth the stop if you're in the area but it's short.

Jose Moya

Tupelo baldcypress swamp is a great hike for people that enjoy nature. This picture perfect place is a great natural wetland. It is said to hold alligators and other swamp animals alike... One word of advice, bug spray is an essential gear to enjoy the surrounding landscape.

Andrea Bonza

(Translated by Google) Not even an alligator and 15 minutes to go around it (Original) Neanche un alligatore e 15 minuti per girarci attorno

Traci McCorkle

Freaking beautiful. What can I say the Cypress beautiful. I even love the swamp. And the baby gaters omg omg omg to ADORABLE. The Cypress knees poking out of the water we're gorgeous. I have to say it was a very peaceful place to be. This is one of my most favorite stops to make on the natchez trace. I will definitely be going back several more times. Love love love it

Anatole Sloan

Griffin Glassel

We found a water snake, sadly no alligators

Paul bridges

Swamp is right , but nice place to walk, couple of bridges to cross, few benches to sit about an easy 20 minute walk definitely enjoyed different scenery along natchez trace

Calvin Tromp

Beautiful, beautiful place. Spend at least 30 minutes here.

Chuck Baggett

I went here to see synchronized fireflies. It was great.

Kurt Weber

Fun easy real with lots of signs explaining the history and plants and animals.

Aaron carpenter

So beautiful! A simple short trail

Eugene Marshall

A quiet and meditative place that offers the chance to get close to wildlife. The loop takes about 20 minutes but I suggest you show down and take 45. Stop and wait for little critters to make themselves known. The trees are obviously the stars of this place; they are majestic and elegant.

Michael Edwards

Sala Downey-Cox

Robert Long

Charles R. Tinsley

Beautiful nature trail off of The Natchez Trace, Blad cypress, Tupelo poplar, pones, good place for sitting to watch wildlife. It has more use than expected, still a nice quiet place to enjoy nature. Just remember to bring insect repellant, you are in Mississippi.

John May

It’s all about the view! The trial is not a mile and a half. It’s a very easy trail that anyone could do. Watch for snakes! If you haven’t been here you should come for sure!

Nemy Kim

Nancy Long

Lincoln Pomerleau

Short walk but well worth the stop.

Michelle Portera


(Translated by Google) Very nice place next to the road, with beautiful trees. The place is rather amazing in this region (rather looks like Louisiana bayous). Well done, I went around gardening in half an hour with my dogs. (Original) Très bel endroit à côté de la route, avec des arbres magnifiques. Le lieu est plutôt étonnant dans cette région (ressemble plutôt à la Louisiane des bayous). Bien aménagé, j'ai fait le tour du maraîchage en une demi heure avec mes chiens.

Colette Cunningham

Peaceful, serene, beautiful, cool place to see on the Natchez Trace.

Jody Wilson

It's a great short walk around this area. There's small signs along the path to give a little more insight I to what's there and why. We enjoyed the walk and got some great pictures on the bridge.

Disabled Dave

The Cypress swamp is a rest area on the Natchez Trace Parkway. It has water looks like a few feet deep and a lot of trees growing out of it. Of course in a swamp there are lots of bugs around. It's a nice rest area to pull out. Easy to see from the main road. This won't would be compatible to other ones. It's just a wildlife area in a rest area pull out. It's easy to get on and off of the main Highway. I highly recommend it to anyone. If you like my reviews please leave a thumbs up. Thanks

Sébastien Julliand

Amazing place. A must see. 20 minutes walk.

Dorothy Collins

Great little trail to walk

The Cypress Swamp was a big hit with my family when we traveled the Natchez Trace Parkway in June. The path made for an easy walk and provided access to some very cool views of the Tupelo bald cypress stands. It's a great place to see nature & wildlife. Bring bug spray and enjoy. I didn't see one but, if you're lucky, you may see a gator sunning themselves on a log as others have.

Cathy Lynn Gill

Tim Crandall

Really interesting swamp area. Easy path that winds around the cypress trees.

Julie Cronan

Easy hike of half mile loop...


Nice location ! Peaceful place. It's a good place for couples or family ~

Andrew Sheehan

Loved visiting this place! The reflection water is wondrous. Be careful not to fall in! I highly recommend coming here!

Jim Ferguson

Cypress Swamp was a wonderful stop on our road trip. It was peaceful and a serene oasis, until a group of French people arrived on their loud motorcycles and started yelling to each other in order to speak to each other. There were of course mosquitoes as is likely to be found in a swamp. Assuming that you're not interrupted by loud hooligans, it's well worth pulling over.

Jordan Cain

Seth Blevins

Very peaceful, would be five stars but mosquitos there are pretty awful.

Glenis Pons

(Translated by Google) Beautiful natural place with a small path (Original) Hermoso lugar natural con un pequeño sendero

JoHanna Ellerbe

Beautiful short walk over the swamp! We are ready for summer to go back.

Dave Grant

Was pretty cool. Short walk around little swamp and the cypress and tupelo trees. There are mosquitoes so be warned. No other wildlife except a squirrel. But the next stop up there was an alligator in the river.

Wendy Goodrich

Lyndsey Cox

Very peaceful and pretty. Nice stop en-route to your destination.

Loved it

Worth the stop for a walk

A fav on the trace in general, but definitely number one for photography. The general beauty and the light show cast by nature is spectacular!

Adam Merrill

Joseph Dutko

While driving up the Natchez Trace Parkway we decided to stop at Tupelo-Bald Cypress and take a short hike that starts with a bridge through the cypress swamp. We learned quite a lot that day and enjoyed ourselves. Surprisingly it was quite fascinating, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Be sure to take the time to stop during your travels and take in this little wonder for yourself.
