Well, I got my reviews crossed up! The Natchez Trace is a wonderful 444 mile ride through time. Lot's of historic stops and places to pull over to read about the many historical landmarks. While on the trip I stopped in Tupelo and visited Elvis Presley's birthplace. It was a great museum and I highly recommend it for anybody who... More

Great to get off the interstates and main roads and see a little dose of America the way it used to be. It's a beautiful drive even out of season and we stopped for short walks and historic sites en route. We saw plenty of deer and not many other people, take your foot off the gas and relax and...

Peaceful. A perfect way to end a full day of touring antebellum homes. The Trace is filled with nature. Many opportunities to stop and revisit history or have a picnic. We plan to go again...all the way to Nashville.

We visited the Trace on Friday, Jan 1. We entered the Trace in Tupelo, MS and traveled all the way up to Meriwether Lewis's grave site. We stopped at the Visitor Center just north of Tupelo and the folks were not busy and very nice. We traveled north and stopped at the Confederate graves - very interesting. We then stopped... More

The quality of the pavement is great for biking. There is heavy traffic near larger cities as local drivers use the trail as an expressway. Most drivers are good at giving bikes lots of room but the 50 mile per hour limit is too high for a road with no shoulders. Scenery is very nice and would obviously be best... More

Enjoyed the stops, the historical information and. The scenery. Just wish there would have been more shops and restaurants on the way. Plan to spend at least 3 days in this 450 mile trek if you want to see everything.

I have been going to the Natchez Trace Parkway for many years. The first time I went it was not even finished. That would been about 1980. My wife and I took our children there often as they were growing up and they grew to love it too. My wife passed any in 2006 and my daughter grew up. My... More

Takes a little longer but great views and History as well. We saw a lot of people driving the trace as well. But few take the time to stop and review the stops.
