Slow down, enjoy, and commune with nature. We saw a lot of deer and wild turkey, a fox, and a pair of Hawks, to mention only a few things. There were so many different landforms... read more

Slow down, enjoy, and commune with nature. We saw a lot of deer and wild turkey, a fox, and a pair of Hawks, to mention only a few things. There were so many different landforms, and so much history that it is mind blowing. We did the entire Trace from Nashville to Natchez in two days. Could've taken longer. it's... More

There is nothing that can compare to a drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway. It is beautiful year round. I travel the trace at least once a week.

The Natchez Trace Parkway is a two lane highway running through 400 miles of hills and forests from just north of Jackson, MS to just south of Nashville, TN. I live in Tupelo, MS, which is close to the half-way point along the route and drive on "The Trace" often. And because I've traveled The Trace so much for many... More

traveling this road on a motorcycle is great. no trucks buffeting you all over the place. no car swerving. it has a 50 mph speed limit so use it if you aren't in a hurry. we traveled this in 95 degree weather and it was much cooler with being tree lined on both sides.

The Natchez Trace is a very nice way to travel from Tennessee to Mississippi. It provides a lush green highway that is a slower pace than the usual Interstates that most of us drive to go on vacation. What's nice is that in the Tupelo area you can use the Trace to go from one side of town to another,... More

I highly recommend going in the fall. The leaves are beautiful. You can see deer and such just all around you. Worth going at least once.

I live near the Trace,and drive it all the time for work and fun,usually short stretches,but I've driven its entire length and there is a world of fun and history along and in the mostly small Mississippi towns it traverses.We call it the 'green tunnel' here because there is a degree of monotony to the homogenous greenery along its route,but...

We enjoyed traveling the Trace. It's beautiful, but if you have no patience, this is not the trip for you. We enjoyed a picnic at Jeff Busby park and loved the cypress swamp!

There is a nice visitors center in this area. If you love history and outdoors take the trip from Nashville to Natchez.
