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.

I heard this is an ancient road that has been used for thousands of years.. either way this parkway is great for cruising just make sure you follow the speed limit because the rangers will not be showing much tolerance

The Natchez Trace Parkway covers hundreds of miles and meanders through Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. The northern end intersects with Tennessee Highway 100 about 17 miles southwest of downtown Nashville. It is a beautiful hilly drive that will take you across the Natchez Trace Bridge at old Highway 96. The bridge is a double arch concrete structure that is 1,572... More

Just drove the Parkway today from Tupelo to Nashville-/it's always nice and clean---- cell service is very limited- bathrooms are few and far between-- speed limit is 50--- but you have no commercial vehicles which is awesome--- it really is a shortcut- but some can't hand the serenity--- I love it

If you need to get from here to there and want to take the slow, quiet route to get there, the Natchez Trace is your road. We saw deer and wild turkeys. There were abundant rest areas, picnic spots, and historic markers. Drive it, bike it, enjoy it, but if you are in a hurry ir want to go shopping,... More

This is a beautiful drive through the south especially during the fall. Make sure and take a side trip to Natchez and to Vicksburg. They are worth the time.

The scenery was spectacular (especially the Cypress Swamp), lots of history alone this Trace, and much more serene than a fast paced interstate highway. What a relaxing way to travel!

Beautiful, peaceful scenery. There are many nature and Native American inspired stops along the way that help bring our countries past to life.

We entered at tupela and contiued to jackson, and drove 60 mph the whole way. It was sunday afternoon, and during that 150 or so miles, 5 cars passed me, and I passed 2 cars. Now feb 22 is not summer, so numbers would be different then. No bikes or motorcycles either. We stopped at the burial mounds and at... More
