Nice road, view is pleasant but somewhat boring after about 30 minutes. Very few animals or other sights.

After visiting our son at Columbus AFB we headed home and were told to try this parkway and what a ride it was. It was like going back in time with no commercial traffic, no advertising signs just a great road and a true pleasure. Everyone should take the time to drive this parkway.

As full-time RVers we've driven scenic roads all over the continent. The Trace Parkway provides a pleasant, peaceful drive but the 60+ miles we drove north of Natchez all looked the same after a while. Think of it as the Blue Ridge Parkway without any scenic overlooks. Yes, there were a few historic spots to stop a but the drive... More

IF you like nature and you are not in a hurry, this drive is for you. Very scenic drive with pulloffs, information centers, gift shops.

The Natchez Trace Parkway runs 444 miles thru Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. With many stops along the way, it has something to interest most anyone. Lots of history here from battle sites to a spot where Passenger Pigeons used to roost before extinction. We got on at Jackson, Miss. and got off at Florence Ala. The speed limit on the... More

We drove the Natchez Trace from Nashville into northern Mississippi. It was a delightful way to go, and because we had some extra time (or needed restrooms) we stopped at a few of the overlooks each way. Wow. Beautiful country! So much nicer and more relaxing than the interstate! The four kids - 14 to 8 - all enjoyed it... More

Fifty MPH seems too fast to enjoy this delightful parkway and definitely too fast for some sections. Three free campgrounds along the way that offer no services save for absolute peace and serenity. History at every turn. Buy the guide book updated April 2011 and take you time to stop, see the sites and stretch your legs. Have a picnic... More

Great scenic trip to enjoy the relaxing side of Northern Mississippi by car, bicycle, motor cycle, or by foot. Great alternative from the fast paced highways and truck traffic. Opportune spot to slow down, enjoy nature, and think about life.
