We thoroughly enjoy the beauty, history and slower pace of this highway, where 50 mph is the speed limit and large trucks are prohibited (RV's are allowed). Slow down, relax, make frequent stops and drive this gem of a highway.

Limited access roadway through peaceful woods and fields. Would be a great motorcycle road due as there is very little traffic and no cross roads.

I was traveling down Natchez Trace Parkway and I hit a detour about 1/2 way between Tupelo, MS and heading towards Nashville. I had to turn around and head back to Hohenwald to find a highway. I will definitely drive during the Fall. I managed to take a few pictures of water.

I grew up traveling the Trace. I probably took it for granted as a kid of course. Now as I have visited short parts of it in the past year I appreciate it much more. It's a beautiful time capsule. It allows a driver a sort of meditation as you travel. Wildlife is common, flowers abundant and beauty is rampant.... More

Excellent free information at the ranger station in Tupelo. The short nature trail introduced us to the trees and bushes common to the area. We drove east from the information center on the trace about 10 miles for a quiet, no traffic escape from the freeway.

Just driving the Trace to get from point A to point B is uninteresting but appreciating the Trace and slower pace is very relaxing. Make stops, explore what is noteworthy about that site, take in the peace of nature. Quick internet searches will point you to the best stops.

This time, we completed the whole parkway from Natchez. Redbud and dogwood trees were blooming beautifully. We have seen many types of butterflies, birds (bluebirds were especially pretty) including wild turkeys along the parkway. A section between Jackson and Tupelo was quite rough with lots of local, speeding drivers. A wonderful corridor to learn much of the history of this... More

This is a must Trip for all ages. Whether it's by car, RV, motorcycle or bike, you will love it. It's a well maintained Parkway and easy to drive. You get to see wildlife, turkeys, deer, raccoons, hawks and other forms of nature. Beauty is all around from dogwood and red bud trees to azaleas bushes to lush vegetation of... More

Miles of quiet beauty stretch out along the Natchez Trace Pkwy. It can be enjoyed in segments by stopping at each brown marker sign indicating an area of either historical significance or natural beauty. Waterfalls, creeks to explore, civil war battlefields, Native American sacred spots, trails, and even an observatory for constellation viewing at night (French Camp exit). My most... More

Uninteresting waste of time. I guess you have to enjoy looking at 50 miles of farmland, I think this is used as more of a highway for the locals. YMMV.
