The Trace is simply amazing. There are so many different things to see, trails to hike, and of course, the Visitor's Center. Recommend seeing all the sights in late October thru May given the extremity of the Mississippi heat.

We followed 330 miles on the Trace and it was spectacular. We are so spoiled with all our modern conveniences. This trail helps you imagine what it was like before modern inventions. A very peaceful drive and scenery was beautiful.

If you're trying to get somewhere fast, I suggest using an interstate or US Route. This is a two lane highway- great sights and it's picturesque. But- I don't recommend if trying to get somewhere fast.

Visited a short piece of the Trace near Tupelo, MS. National park that runs from Natchez, MS. to Nashville, TN. Highly recommended.

I often use the Natchez Trace Parkway to avoid Tupelo traffic at peak traffic times. The Natchez Trace Parkway is very scenic and enjoyable. At night beware of all the deer. At all times of the day be aware of all the bicyclists.

I travel the trace as often as I can. It is a nice change from the face paced highway system. The roads are maintained very well. They keep the trash picked up and the grass cut. There has been very few times that I haven't...More

There are many beautiful homes in Natchez. The drive from the southern terminus of the trace in Natchez to Jackson can be done in about 3 hours if you don't stop much. You definitely do want to stop at Mt Locust, Owens... More

Go to the visitor center and get your map before you start the drive or you could look it up on line and see if you could get it that way. I hope that it helped you out some.
