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.

The Trace is a great way to travel, especially by motorcycle. Speed limit is 50 (though you get some impatient drivers) and no commercial vehicles allowed. Well maintained road with many historic pull offs and restrooms. Each state's Trace is a little different looking. Make sure to read up on the history of the Natchez Trace. You'll appreciate it more.

The Natchez Trace is the most peaceful drive to and from work. If you are visiting the area there are plenty of side stops and pull offs to learn the history of the area and how the Parkway started and it's primary functions is a trade route. The Trace also has some amazing trails for biking and cross country running.

The Natchez Trace Parkway is an historic route that runs southwest-northeast for over 400 miles across the state of Mississippi. For hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years this approximate route has been used as a game trail, native American migration route, and a way by which steamboaters returned from Natchez back upriver. At one time cotton plantations extended along much of... More

My home base is not far from the midpoint of the Natchez Trace and I've taken great advantage of that proximity when I feel the need to unwind. The full-length parkway runs 444 miles from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN, of which I've ridden and driven a bit more than half (230 miles) from Raymond to Tishomingo, MS. Even when... More
