No climbs so that means you can go farther. Love the wildlife and there's no telling how many animals you'll see. I love this place.

From Tupelo to Jackson was a wonderful cruise vs. the interstate. Scenic and quiet. Not a lot of stops. Make sure you have a full tank of gas and food.

Can't describe the feeling of being able to drive at a decent speed and enjoy nature and life. Do it for the feeling and history but don't understand why signs are not fixed and why speed limit monitoring is not done. We adhered a constant 52mph per hour and vehicles constantly passed us. 300 miles and no enforcers observed. Overall,... More

The Natchez trace is a must for any bucket list. Serene beauty that is unparalleled. As you drive through you can feel the energy of this historic trail. Take your time and make lots of stops along the way. The cypress swamp is incredible with trees over 600 years old!

We drove from Nashville to south of Tupelo. Don't expect to go fast on this drive and if you stopped at all the turnoffs, then you would never get anywhere. Would recommend that you get a parkway map before you go so you can plan your trip. An atlas would also be nice so that you know where you are... More

When I first included the Natchez Trace Parkway in my recent road trip itinerary I thought that it would take me through small, interesting towns with neat tid-bits of history, etc. Instead it is a 2-lane road through the woods. You've got to take an exit and travel a ways to get gas, restrooms, food, etc. It is like driving... More

I can honestly say that this is one of the most beautiful roads I've had the pleasure to drive. While perhaps not as breathtaking as the Pacific Coast Hwy, or Cape Breton Island, it is wonderful in its own right - peaceful, serene, with 10,000 years of history. 444 miles traversing 3 states, with nary a billboard or gas station...

If you want to learn about Native Americans and Civil War history this is the place to go. Natchez, a city older than New Orleans, has a Mardi Gras and tours of Antebellum homes. Vicksburg has the battle fields. The Trace goes from Natchez up into Tennessee, with stops along the way that are all worth stopping for. Make sure... More

We started the Natchez Trace at Tupelo after visiting Shiloh. We headed south to the town of Natchez. The trace is very quiet with no speeding semi trucks which we enjoyed. The fall colors north of Jackson, Ms were great. The parkway is marked every mile. Signs are posted for every stop. Some stops do not have much other than... More

Great drive outside Tupelo Ms. Leaves were changing and the drive was great. The different pull-offs were great explaining the area and what the Trace is all about.
