We took the Natchez Trace Parkway south from Tupelo, MS at 7 am in the morning. It's a beautiful drive with a well maintained roadway. It's only 2 lanes, but it's dotted yellow lines so you can pass if you need to. Along the Parkway, there are historical markers with a pull over spot. There are signs explaining the area... More

We drove the whole 444miles of the parkway. There are so many historic markers on the route that we had to miss some out as we would never have got to Natchez. You have to get the map so that you can see what history there is plus very few cars use this road so it made the driving very... More

I had high expectations of the Natchez Trace in this area - especially the Twin Arch bridge I had read so much about. Complete downer - could not see the bridge from the north side due to overgrown brush. As always, the Natchez Trace is just beautiful as it is non-commercialized and country. Saw quite a few wild turkeys; but... More

Definite must do drive- beautiful area. No traffic, which was nice. Great to see special areas in America.

Absolutely breathtaking! The drive is well worth the trip. It is a very scenic route. There are many places to hike along the trace and many historic sites to see.

We didn't drive much of the parkway, but the parts we did drive were quiet, peaceful, and beautiful.

Worth driving and taking the time to take in the scenery. No trucks so you can drive at your own pace and see countryside that makes you feel a part of history

The scenery was not very scenic and the overlooks were laughable. The pull off just showed us what use to be there. We didn't ride too long before getting off!

A Relaxing (maybe too long) Motorcycle Ride through Pretty Scenery. June 2015, heading to Maggie Valley, NC, along with two friends, we toured the Trace beginning in Natchez at the Natchez Coffee Shop for breakfast, a great little downtown cafe/diner. We had planned to ride the entire 444 miles with Nashville as our second overnight stop, but didn't stick 100%... More
