There is literally nothing else in the world like this experience.
Do it from start to finish, Nashville to Natchez. Make the stops. Take several days. Go alone. Turn off the cell phone. Listen to your Soul and it's Creator.
Prepare for the epiphanies by studying the immense history of the road and the region it traverses. From Abraham Lincoln, to the brutality of the Highwaymen that ruled the road in rebellion. The history is thick in the air. The reflection compelled as you make the journey will be as epic as the roadway beneath your tires.
The single best travel experiences of my life have been on the "Ghost Road: of the Natchez Trace.
Places you MUST stop:
Water Valley Overlook
Jackson Falls (Take the short hike)
Tobbaco Farm / Old Trace Drive
Merriweather Lewis (One of History's great mysteries)
Metal Ford (Where they strategized the defeat of the Brittish in New Orleans)
The Graves of the Unknown Confederates
Witch Dance (Study the legend)
French Camp (Epic History and Food)
Ross Barnett Reservoir (Get in the water)
Lost City of Rocky Springs (Another History Mystery)
The Old Country Store ("World's Best Fried Chicken" - Alton Brown)
And that's not ALL of it. (Just the "Must Stops")
Truly a great National Park !
