William Faulkner Scenic Byway


The William Faulkner Scenic Byway is a 15 mile stretch of Mississippi Highway 30 located almost entirely in the Holly Springs National Forest. Several points of interest along the byway are the Tanglefoot Trail, the Puskus Lake Recreational Area, and the Little Tallahatchie River. There are also a number of other locations more closely related to the writer near the byway such as Faulkner’s birthplace in New Albany and Faulkner’s grave in St. Peter’s Cemetery.
