Richtidebruin: If I lived where you are I'd be looking for this trail.... when Merither Lewis was traveling from St Louis to the Natchez Trace his route was thru Memphis, Ft Pickering to Colbert Ferry....though not part of the Natchez Trace it was a connecting route from the Mississippi River to the Natchez. Not paved but traces of the trail would most likely still be there. Milepost 355 below on the Natchez would be pretty easy to find on a Natchez Map. Colbert Ferry would also be pretty easy to Google. in 1809, Meriwether Lewis, Major James Neelly, John Pernia and Neelly's servant arrive at Colbert Ferry (milepost 327.3) to cross the Tennessee River on their trip north to Nashville, TN. The group paid George Colbert $1 for each horse and rider and fifty cents for each pack-horse to ferry them across the 500 yard wide Tennessee River. Lewis and his travel companions continued into Tennessee and camped for the night just south of present day Collinwood TN, milepost 355 on the parkway. And traveled on to Grinders Mill/Inn where he spent the night and died/committed suicide.
