Located along the Natchez Trace Parkway, the site is south of the Visitors Center in Tupelo.
People were able to explore the Black Belt Prairie and get an up close and personal look at a unique eco-system that Mississippi has to offer.
The guided tour educates peope on the beauty of the wildflowers and the different ways people having been using them for a couple of centuries.
"You may glance over and see a bunch of grasses and things but you really have to look before you see the flowers," says Kristen Maxfield, Interpretive Park Ranger. "We have bright purple, bright orange, yellow, white a Whole bunch of different flowers. If you actually get out and walk through the trail then you'll actually get to see them."
The guided wildflower walk is done three times a year and this marked the final one of the year.
