“Beautiful Alabama”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The scenery is beautiful. The traffic is slow as compared to four lane highways. There are interesting places to pull off and see where Native Americans once live. You can also see mounds made by the Indians.

“First timers”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Beautiful,clean,no traffic,lots of historic sites,rest areas. Left Mississippi and headed to Nashville-first time on the Trace and will not be the last.
Could us more signage on where to get gas/food. Lots of bicycle riders. Woud be great if they made a Natchez Trace bike lane. It would be safe for all!

“Prettiest time to drive on this road is in the Spring and Fall!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Only ride on this road if you are not in a hurry! The prettiest time to ride on this road is in the Spring when dogwood trees are blooming or in the fall when the leaves are turning! It's a scenic ride!

“Covered a lot of Missiissippi.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Have been through Mississippi from the east (up from Florida) and from the north (on my way to New Orleans) good highway, friendly people, nice state. The New Orleans trip was in spring of 2011. Love the southern states - very diverse landscape. Beaches, swamps, mountains.

“Most relaxing drive and a lot of history to see”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Got on at northern end outside Nashville and travelled all the way south to Canton MS where I got off. A most relaxing drive. A ton of places to stop and explore the history, plenty of picnic areas and restrooms. Very scenic.
