Mississippi Blues Trail Geocaching Challenge
The Mississippi Blues Trail was established to recognize the unique connection our state has with a style of music known as the "Mississippi Blues" or simply "the Blues." Many musicians acquired fame, and for some fortune, playing this style of music.
The Blues Trail markers are divided into five basic regions across the state.
The markers are located in places of historical significance to blues music heritage. Each marker tells about a specific piece of that blues history. The vast majority of these markers are in the Delta region in the northwest part of the state. This challenge involves visiting those historical MS Blues Trail markers scattered throughout the state of Mississippi... and beyond. Participating cities include: Tupelo, Columbus, Jackson, Holly Springs, Cleveland, Clarksdale, University of Mississippi, Aberdeen, Meridian, Vicksburg. For a complete list of the markers, please visit the Mississippi Blues Trail.
