Drove almost 100 miles of it and it was really a nice relaxing change of pace!!

As the title says, it was nice to set the cruise on 52 mph and just go. No stop signs, no towns, no commercial traffic and LOTS of nature and nice sights.

Very peaceful and scenic with lots of historic sites to stop and walk around. No commercial traffic, no unnecessary signboards, 50mph speed limit. Did get caught out by the closure at mile 338, South of Nashville.

We had a beautiful drive from Tupelo to Jackson. The trees were leafing out and some of the stops were just gorgeous. We took time to take a few trails, like Jeff Busby Little Mountain and the tupelo and cypress trail. We also stopped at many of the signs and think we gained an appreciation of the history of this...

Drove from Jackson to Tupelo on the Trace. Enjoyed the scenery and peaceful driving experience. We stopped for lunch at French Camp and enjoyed the cypress swamp.

We spent 3 days on the Natchez Trace Parkway beginning in Natchez with stops in Jackson, Tupelo, and Nashville. Absolutely loved every minute of it. My husband described the drive as an easy Sunday afternoon drive for 3 full days. We stopped at many, many of the sties along the way, walked/drove the Old Trace several times, and generally learned... More

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.
