We took the Natchez Trace from Vicksburg to Tupelo. The drive was beautiful and there are so many neat, historical places/markers to stop along the way. The scenery is amazing and relaxing and it is a great break from the fast paced driving necessary on major highways, interstates, etc. We look forward to being able to travel through again and...

A beautiful quiet road. We stopped at the sunken Trace and the Cypress Swamp. Both beautiful. We stayed in Koskiusko, which is just off the Parkway.

444 miles of beautiful landscapes, paths to walk, and historical sites. Enjoyed stopping to read the markers along the way! Would have ventured down some of the walking paths, but summertime in the south is hot & humid, so we're going back in the fall!

I love riding motorcycles on this road and am fortunate to live close enough to jump on for a head clearing cruise when needed.

I was traveling northeast from Tupelo and decided to take my first trip on the Natchez Trace Parkway. So much natural beauty! I did not have time to do any hiking, but it looks like a great place for families to stop and take in nature. Limited access road and controlled speeds. Built for your to take in nature as... More

Not the quickest route, but definitely the calmest and most beautiful. Some really interesting places to see on the Natchez Trave!

Beautiful tree lined drive with no commercial buildings. Be sure you have a full tank of gas. Nice and peaceful with 60 mph speed limit. Patrolled regularly.

Did not ride the entire Trace on this trip, but had an awesome ride from Cherokee, AL to the Highway 82 intersection near Mathiston, MS. Can't wait to plan a trip to ride the entire Trace.

My sister and I go on a road trip every year, and drove the Natchez Trace Parkway from Nashville to Natchez. We stopped overnight at Tupelo. It is a great drive, but just be prepared to exit for gas and food, as the parkway is all scenery and no eatery. Some of our favorite stops include: * The Merriweather Lewis... More

As two couples, we journeyed on three motorcycles from Pa. to Natchez, MS. to ride the NTP north. To enjoy the trip as much as possible, we split the Trace into two days. The first day through MI. was not interesting to me. The only thing I thought was cool was a short jaunt on the original trace. One of... More
