Vicksburg to Baton Rouge (302 miles)

A trip perfect for those who want a great adventure in the heart of America. This is a beginner level “expedition-style” trip. Maybe you are a scouts group wanting to step it up a notch and really teach your scouts some life skills. Maybe you are an outdoor educator looking for new places to explore. Maybe you are forming a team of people and want them to work well together–this adventure beats any corporate retreat. Whatever your role, this is a perfect introductory-level expedition trip.

Visit the bluffs and history of Vicksburg, MS “The Key to the South”. Continue down to the high bluffs of Natchez, the Mississippi River’s oldest city, full of eccentric charm. Then jump further down south where the alligators reign supreme. You will pass the Old River Control structure which is the gateway to the Atchafalaya River. Who knows, you may even decide to lock through and visit the bayou for a day! Then continue on to the Huey P. Long bridge of Baton Rouge, where you will be greeted by massive ocean liners and tankers, carrying thousands of tons of cargo. The Mississippi River is transformed here and you will be witness to it all.
