Nothing too exciting about this. Similar to the Blue Ridge Parkway, except without the spectacular views. There are places where you can see the old trace, but they are not frequent.

Just get off the Interstate and explore the Trace. Came across the Trace on our road trip. Simply by accident. We had not covered it in school in California. So we drove 30 miles up and back along the Trace. Fascinating history lesson.

We didn’t drive far but visited the visitor center in Tupelo. It was very clean and nice history about the whole trace. I had no idea that it was the daughters of the confederacy that spearheaded the project.

One of the best road trips in the States, absolutely beautiful. You can't drive fast, it has a low limit on most sectors but it has more scenic attractions than the faster highways. It's also possible to do small sectors so you don't have to...More

From Memphis the northern portion of the Natchez Trace would be out of your way to the east. I suggest you consider US Highway 31 which is the "Blues" highway. It goes south along the Mississippi River through the Delta... More

We found maps to the Trace to be impossible to get, with the exception of the download from the computer. Getting onto the Trace at Tupelo and going south is, in my opinion, the best part of the Parkway. Everything is... More
