Great ride for a sunny afternoon

This is a lovely parkway with beautiful views. We spent an afternoon riding the Parkway and stopping at a few parks.

Our third time on the trace! We love seeing the wildlife in the early mornings and evenings as well as the foliage in the fall.

The Natchez Trace is a spectacular 425 mile road of a type that is rarely experienced in the USA. There is virtually NO signage along the road. It is designed to give a feel of America hundreds of years ago and it succeeds. There are exhibits, Indian mounds, When we would get off the parkway for a meal or to... More

We decided to take the whole 442 miles of the Natchez Trace and loved every mile of it! We stopped at most of the sites...some to get out and take pictures others just to read the history! The most impressive part of the drive was how clean they kept it! freshly mowed grass lined the roadway. even the sites we... More

A beautiful drive. The Parkway is a very easy and scenic drive. I drove from Tupelo Ms to Natchez Below the Hill. Plenty of rest stops but fuel is scarce. An enjoyable experience.

If you haven't traveled on the Trace yet, you are missing alot. We have been from one end to the other stopping at every marker. When our children were small it helped educate them...and us too. Now we stop at our favorites and eat or camp. There are quite a few Campgrounds along the way and just a short distance... More

Nice 50 mph road. It's very nice to not have to contend with tractor-trailers but after 100 miles, I was bored.

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
